We can help you to apply for Wellcome Trust clinical or non-clinical fellowships in global health, if you follow these steps:

Applications being submitted through the Wellcome Trust Bloomsbury Centre for Global Health Research should be presented to the Centre Policy Group prior to submission to the Wellcome Trust.

1. Check the Wellcome Trust website to see the types of fellowship available.

2. Check whether you are eligible for a fellowship, see link for individual fellowships above.

3. If you are eligible for a fellowship, think about what kind of research project you would like to do, and approach academic staff members who share your interests at one or more of our partner institutions in London or overseas, with a view to identifying a potential supervisor or sponsor. A list of potential supervisors and sponsors at our London-based institutions, with their areas of research interest shown on their profile links, can be seen below (policy group members list).

4. Once you have decided on a field of research, identified a supervisor/sponsor, and established your application time line please contact the Centre who will advise you on policy group deadlines and procedures: or 0044 (0)207 927 2116

5. All candidates applying for Wellcome Trust fellowships who apply through the Bloomsbury Centre will be expected to present their research proposal and CV to our Policy Group before the deadline for submission to the Trust. You will be expected to have a nearly completed proposal by the time you make your presentation. The policy group consists of academics covering a wide range of disciplines from our London-based institutions, who will provide feedback designed to strengthen your application.

6. Policy group meetings are held three times a year. You should check the Wellcome Trust deadline date for the particular fellowship you are applying for, as dates and preliminary application requirements vary. You should plan to present your proposal to our Policy Group at least 2 months before the submission deadline, to allow yourself time to make any changes suggested by the group.

Candidates are encouraged to liaise closely with their supervisor / sponsor and the Bloomsbury Centre Co-ordinator on the timing of their fellowship submission and will be asked to submit proposal documents by e-mail to the Centre office one week before the Policy Group meeting for circulation to the Policy Group members. Presentations to Policy Group will include a 10 minute presentation plus a 10 minute discussion
