New scholarships available to fund scholars from sub-Saharan Africa on LSHTM’s MSc programmes

The Sir Andrew Witty GSK Scholarships are now available to fund 30 scholars over the next 10 years from sub-Saharan Africa on LSHTM’s MSc programmes.

Established as a result of a £1.3 million gift to the School from GSK, this fund will play an important role in supporting the next generation of public and global health leaders in Africa. Scholars will be equipped with the expertise to improve health services in their countries and communities, and strengthen the continent’s capacity to respond to the important and changing health challenges it faces.

The scholarships have been announced in recognition of Sir Andrew Witty’s leadership and achievements upon his retirement from GSK. Three scholarships will be available each year over a 10-year period, which mirrors the length of Sir Andrew’s tenure as CEO.

All LSHTM MScs are eligible for these scholarships, including PSG’s MSc in Demography & Health and MSc Reproductive & Sexual Health Research.

See the School’s website for further details.
