How to Apply

The application process involves two steps and you must meet all the eligibility criteria and complete your application before the deadline which is 23:59 (GMT) on Monday 04 March 2024.:

Step 1

Step 2

  • In your application to study, choose the GSK Scholarships for Future Health Leaders in the ‘FUNDING DETAILS’ section. Failure to select these scholarships will result in exclusion from funding consideration.
  • Attach a completed Scholarships Application Form to your study application submitted in Step 1. This form is the sole required scholarship attachment, as applicants should have already submitted references, transcripts, a CV, etc., as part of their study application. Ensure both steps are completed by the scholarship deadline of 23:59 (GMT) on Monday, March 4, 2024.

Application Review

All applications will be reviewed and processed after the deadline. Every application submitted before the deadline will be considered equally, regardless of the submission date.
