The Imperial Centre for Paediatrics and Child Health (PaeCH) is delighted to be able to award up to 2 bursaries to participants of the Applied Paediatrics MSc programme commencing 2024/2025 academic year.

Each bursary will be of the sum of £2,000 and is available to successful applicants within the first academic year of the postgraduate Applied Paediatrics programme.

The bursary will only be available to students whose aim is to complete the full MSc on a part time basis over 2 to 3 years. It will be awarded to students who aim to utilise the MSc project component to investigate a pertinent research question with a focus on child health. Students who do not go on to complete the full MSc will be required to return the bursary award.


We will award the bursaries based on the clear indication of an interest in child health research with a declaration of a specific focus for the research. Applications are welcome from any student currently holding an offer for the 24/25 academic year to start the Applied Paediatrics programme.


Two bursaries of up to £2,000 each are available.
