Applications open tomorrow for the 2015/16 Africa London Nagasaki (ALN) fund. The ALN fund is a scholarship set up to support African scientists to undertake a Master’s degree in a subject relevant to the control of infectious disease in Africa.

The awards will support a candidate to undertake an MSc at either the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University, Japan or at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London, UK. Up to four awards will be made each year for the period 2010 to 2015. Successful applicants will receive a maximum of $50,000 each to cover tuition fees, travel and living expenses.

An award will only be made on condition that the candidate meets the criteria set for entry on the course for which they have applied.

Full details about the latest round of applications can be found on the ALN website from tomorrow.
