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 is able to offer scholarships thanks to the donationas and financial support from different organisations, foundations, alumni, donors. Every year we have to see how much funding we have to offer as scholarships. We usually offer partial scholarships (which means that participants have to find additional funding themselves), and if finances allow a few full scholarships. Full scholarships are often only for certain countries or on certain topics (in line with preferences with funding organisations).
