KIT Scholarship Fund offers scholarships to talented health professionals from low-income countries to study a Master’s programme at KIT Royal Tropical Institute. The aim being that with what they learn they will contribute to improving the health care situation in their country and/or around the world.
KIT alumni return after their studies and work on improving health care at all levels. They work in local and international organisations working on prevention and health systems strengthening, fighting against epidemics such as Covid-19, Ebola, malaria, HIV, and also improving maternal health and child care. In addition, they also pass on their knowledge within local organisations and work at ministries as policymakers and managers. Therefore a study program of one masters student can make a difference to the health of thousands of people.
KIT Scholarship Fund aims to contribute to that by offering scholarships to health professionals from low income countries who have few other scholarship opportunities.
Scholarships thanks to donations
KIT Scholarship Fund works together with different organisations, foundations, alumni, donors to make this possible. It may be that we offer scholarships for selected countries in line with preferences from funding organisations.
