Become an HDR UK scholarship partner
Our master’s scholarships will help train the new generation of professionals needed to close the health data science skills gap. We are looking for more charity and industry partners to co-fund students. Partnership gives organisations a cost-effective way to fund a valuable piece of research and access to motivated people who they may wish to recruit to their teams.
