Global pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline launched a scholarship scheme on 29 March that will train masters students in health from sub-Saharan Africa in the UK.

The Sir Andrew Witty GSK Scholarships are named after the company’s former CEO, who stepped down on 1 April.

The programme will award 30 scholarships to Africans over the next decade. Winners will undertake a year-long masters degree in health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, a partner in the programme. The scholarships will cover tuition and living costs.
