For international students, McDonald Fellowships are fully funded scholarships. Both master’s and PhD degrees are eligible for these awards. The fellowship includes a two-year stipend for about £30,000 GBP per year to cover living and travel expenses, as well as an additional £2,000 GBP per year payment to the host university.
Early-career researchers studying multiple sclerosis from low- and middle-income nations can work abroad in a research institute thanks to the McDonald Fellowship. We anticipate that recipients will be able to continue their MS research and/or patient treatment in low- and middle-income nations after receiving the award by utilizing their newly acquired knowledge and networks. Also, you can additionally check out the Top University Scholarships in the UK For International Students.
