Scholarships offered through the Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium

The Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium, funded by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, is currently offering both Masters Scholarships and Clinical Fellowships

Masters Scholarships

The Consortium offers scholarships to study Masters [MSc] in Public health for Eye care at the University of Cape Town, South Africa and at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, United Kingdom. The MSc helps to equip ophthalmologists and eye care managers with the skills and knowledge they need to implement effective, sustainable strategies to prevent and treat blindness across the Commonwealth. Apply now.

Clinical fellowships

The Consortium’s clinical fellowships programme is offering both long-term (one-year) fellowships and short-term (three-month). These are available to ophthalmologists from low- and middle-income Commonwealth countries. Thanks to the enhancement of their sub-specialty knowledge and skills, which will enable them to deliver high quality eye care, Commonwealth fellows will be able to more effectively relieve the burden of blindness in their own countries. Apply now.
