Amma Kyei-Mensah Scholarships

Aimed at postgraduate students (Clinical years, Master’s degrees, or PhDs) studying Medicine-related courses, a minimum of £15,000 is awarded for general financial support and to cover living costs. Up to £45,000 can be awarded to cover the 3 years. A preference may be given to those studying neuroscience and/or from access backgrounds.

This award is named after Honorary Fellow Dr Amma Kyei-Mensah (1980), a leading Consultant in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. She was one of the first cohort of women undergraduates in 1980 and is passionate about encouraging young people from non-traditional backgrounds to study Medicine.
