Since 2015, we have been delighted, with the kind support of Fiona Deane with money left to her by a family legacy, to have offered the Forward Bound scholarship to MSc Health Promotion applicants from low or lower-middle income countries. This award is intended to support health and other professionals who are employed or who volunteer in roles where they will be able to influence and shape health promotion practice and policy on their return.
Due to this generous donation, we have been able to offer tuition fees, accommodation, travel and a living subsistence each year to successful candidates. There have been six scholars so far. For 2022-23, we are hoping to offer two scholarships. For more information about the Forward Bound scholarship, click here.
We spoke to Caroline Mukebezi, our sixth and most recent scholar (2020-21) just before she left Brighton to hear all about how the experience has been for her, click here to watch.
We also asked Anastasiia Bondarenko, our second scholar (2016-17) and Faith Atyang, our fifth scholar (2019-20), for their reflections on their time at Brighton, click here to watch.
