Fully-funded TDR Postgraduate Training Scholarship 2022 in Implementation Science

Applications for the TDR Postgraduate Training Scholarship 2022 in Implementation Science are open. The University of the Witwatersrand’s School of Public Health invites suitably qualified candidates to apply for a full-time funded Master Degree Program in the field of Implementation Science. The scholarship is provided by TDR, the UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases – hosted at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.

The goal of the scheme is to enhance graduate training capacity in implementation research and boost the number of researchers in low- and middle-income countries. The focus is on implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty, including the neglected tropical diseases, malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/TB co-infection and COVID-19.

The training is focused on courses relevant to a career in implementation science. Implementation science is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them, and is particularly useful in low- and middle-income countries where many health interventions do not reach those who need them the most.

Degree Program on Offer: MSc Epidemiology in the field of Implementation Science (18 months full-time).


The scheme will provide full scholarships for Masters in the 2022 academic year and covers the following:

  • Return economy airfare between the candidate’s home country and Johannesburg, South Africa;
  • Tuition fees;
  • Basic medical and accident insurance;
  • Monthly stipend to cover living expenses, including accommodation;
  • Support for research project expenses.

Further, recipients’ careers will be tracked with the new TDR Global alumni and stakeholder platform that will monitor the impact of the program, as well as provide opportunities for networking and increased visibility opportunities for the Fellows.
