About these scholarships
The Forward Bound scholarship is available to Health Promotion MSc applicants from low or lower-middle income countries where similar postgraduate education opportunities are not available. It is intended to support health and other professionals who are employed or who volunteer in roles where they will be able to influence health promotion practice and policy on their return.
The scholarship will fund course fees, travel costs, accommodation, visa, subsistence and health insurance for 12 months – equivalent to a cost of £25,000.
There is one scholarship fund of £25,000 each year, however for 2022–23 only there are two scholarships. This is a highly competitive scholarship, by invitation by the Course Leader.

Who is eligible?
The Forward Bound scholarship is for applicants from low-income countries, and lower-middle income countries where similar postgraduate education opportunities in health promotion/public health are not available. (Currently, this excludes applicants from Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria).
To be eligible for the Forward Bound scholarship award, you need to have been offered a place on the Health Promotion MSc course and be living and/or working in a low income or low-middle income country as defined by the World Bank.
Applicants would normally be working in a professional capacity in health promotion or a public health role. In exceptional cases, applicants whose influence is through non-paid roles – for example, through voluntary agencies or through other health related work – may also be considered.
Please note that applicants who have previously had an opportunity to study in the UK (or other higher income country included in the terms and conditions) are not eligible to apply.
