Points to remember
The candidate must keep in mind the following while filling out the Application.
Applicants are recommended to complete Phase 1 early to allow time to process their payment of the GBP 50.00 LSHTM admissions application fee. Applicants will not be able to apply for a research report until the invoice is received. Therefore, we will request that students complete this funding and submit their thesis applications at least 1-2 weeks before the scholarship deadline to ensure no gaps in admissions or payment processing that may affect reaching the scholarship deadline. We will advise candidates, where possible, to request a full research application as far in advance of the scholarship deadline as possible to allow timely processing.
Number of applications
Just one application for GSK Scholarships for Aspiring Health Leaders for 2021-22 should be submitted by each applicant. Therefore, we will advise applicants to review their online applications and attachments carefully before submission. The first submitted application will be considered, and there would be no chance of submitting the supplementary query form after submission.
Applicants who have already submitted and made an invitation of admission to a completed 2021-22 London-based MSc application can qualify for the scholarship by completing the scholarship application (step 2 above) and submitting it by the scholarship deadline.
For this funding, incomplete applications would not be accepted. Incomplete applications include those in both measures 1 and 2 above with incomplete, additional details. The thesis application and the application for a scholarship must all be submitted by the scholarship deadline. Applicants should ensure that, by the scholarship date, all required supplementary documents (including references) are sent through the LSHTM admissions portal.
These scholarships are open to students for each of LSHTM’s 19 non-distance learning Masters programs (including our joint programmes: MSc Global Mental Health; MSc Health Policy, Planning & Financing; MSc One Health, Veterinary Epidemiology). Please notice that you will be led to the joint provider for the following services to complete your study submission, as LSHTM does not conduct admissions for the following courses: MSc Global Mental Health; MSc One Health; MSc Veterinary Epidemiology.
Applicants whose research application is successful must pay a deposit within 28 days of submitting an entry offer. Applicants applying for LSHTM scholarships must contact the Admissions team to tell them that they are awaiting the result of the scholarship (applicants must provide the Admissions team with both the name of the scholarship and the expected decision date in this email). For any application for which the claimant has applied, this must be replicated. The Admissions Committee will then push the deposit date to match the decision deadline of the scholarship funding.
Applicants who experience some technical problems while using the online scholarships application process can, in the first place, consider clearing their browser cache and checking that they are using the newest update of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. If this does not address the technical challenge, please contact the IT Services team of LSHTM, including the applicant’s full name; the applicant’s scholarship; and the technical problem found. Where appropriate, please insert a screenshot as well: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact the LSHTM Scholarships team with any questions about the selection process, scholarship criteria or application deadline: email@example.com.
Please notice that only after the deadline will all applications be checked and processed. Both applications received before the deadline will be considered relatively, independent of the date of request.
Decisions will happen by 31 May 2021, and the active applicants will be updated.
