Chevening-OSF-LSHTM Partnership Scholarships
The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is a Chevening partner. This year Open Society Foundations (OSF) is co-sponsoring a number of these Chevening Partnership Scholarships for applicants who wish to study at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

We are offering up to 10 co-funded Partnership Scholarships for 2016-17. These particular scholarships are being offered in addition to the general scheme (Main Award) Chevening Scholarships. The top ten successful candidates will be offered a Partnership Scholarship and all other successful candidates will receive a Chevening Scholarship through the main award programme.

Award details
Chevening-OSF-LSHTM Partnership Scholarships cover full tuition fees for your chosen course at LSHTM (country fee caps do not apply) and the same allowance and stipend package as a standard general scheme Chevening Award.

As a Chevening-OSF-LSHTM Partnership Scholarship recipient, you will stand to benefit from an expanding suite of unique networking and engagement opportunities offered by Chevening Partners.

In addition, applying for a Partnership Scholarship will increase your chances of being considered for a general scheme Chevening Scholarship at LSHTM.
