The DHI supports the development of pipeline of talent for the Digital Health and Care sector by awarding annually up to 20 FTE Master’s scholarships for students taking an MSc or MRes studies in Digital Health and Care.
The scholarships are funded by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC). In 2018-19 and 2019-20, the scholarships were at the value of £7,387 each and are available for September and January starts.
Scholarships for September start are usually advertised from April for a June deadline, with a secondary deadline in August, if all scholarships do not get awarded in June. The January scholarships are advertised from September, with a November application deadline. The deadlines and adverts are announced on the DHI newsletter, our website and on Twitter.Learn more
The scholarships are awarded on a fee-waiver basis only. This means that if the Master’s course fee is higher than the scholarship award, the university will agree to waive the excess of the student’s fee. In cases where the MSc fee is less than the available award, the excess sum is intended to go towards supporting the student in their studies (i.e. buying necessary equipment or to fund a conference trip to disseminate their research. It is not meant to be used towards living costs).
