Eligibility

The scholarships will be awarded to students who are accepted for admission on to the online learning Master of Surgery (ChM) in Clinical Ophthalmology at the University of Edinburgh, one of the Edinburgh Surgery Online suite of Masters programmes. Applicants should already have been offered a place at the University of Edinburgh and should have firmly accepted that offer or be intending to do so. Applicants should be advanced trainees/residents/registrars in ophthalmology. Applications from early career ophthalmologists may also be considered. Six scholarships will be allocated to eligible candidates from member countries of The College of Ophthalmology of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa (COECSA) (Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Sudan (Republic), Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia). In addition, six scholarships will be allocated to eligible candidates. Selection is based on academic merit and the personal statement in which you describe your current contribution to your country's local and national ophthalmology development plans and how you will use the scholarship to further contribute to the development of ophthalmology services in your country. Successful applicants will be committed to working in their country's ophthalmology service on completion of their studies; to using their new found skills to further enhance and develop the service; and to fostering clinical and academic links between their country's medical universities, ophthalmology teaching hospitals and research institutes and The University of Edinburgh.
