Applications for the Wellcome Trust studentships will be welcomed from all countries, including from Africa, and tuition fees will be covered for all students irrespective of their country of origin. 

Details of the application procedure will be posted shortly but we expect to ask for all submissions to be made by mid-December, and candidates shortlisted for interview to be informed early in January 2020.

Interviews are likely to take place in Glasgow in January/February 2020, with an option for teleconferencing for international applicants.

Applications for the 2 University of Glasgow studentships will be organised through the Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa. Further details will appear here soon.
