Funded by the generous support of The Child Health Reseach CIO, up to ten students registered for an MSc or MRes at ICH can receive up to £3,000 towards the fees for a full-time student OR up to £1,500 per year for a student taking an MSc on a part-time basis, paid over two years. The award amount will be deducted from the cost of fees at the start of the programme.


The scholarship is available to students registered any pathway within the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute Child Health MSc/MRes programmes.

Selection criteria

Students will be assessed on the basis of the scholarship application form and in particular on their personal statement, as well as their original application for their degree programme. 

The selected student will:

  • be academically strong.
  • show commitment to their field of study demonstrated through previous work/ work experience, professional development, attendance at conferences and qualifications.
  • demonstrate their career plans and how the MSc/MRes will benefit these plans.
  • Provide a strong rationale for the scholarship bursary with details of how the money will be used to support their education.

Where the award is made to an overseas student, the candidate must have already obtained the required level of English Language and the panel must take steps within reason to ensure that the candidate will be able to afford the remaining costs involved with completing the MSc /MRes.
