Elsie and Daphne Kirkpatrick, the daughters of Lieutenant Colonel Henry Kirkpatrick, established scholarships in honor of their father. These scholarships were designed to encourage and promote the study of ophthalmology, a field that their father was deeply passionate about. Lieutenant Colonel Kirkpatrick had a distinguished career in the Indian Medical Service, during which he worked in various hospitals such as the General Hospital in Madras and the Government Ophthalmic Hospital. He was instrumental in developing teaching and postgraduate training in pathology and ophthalmology in these institutions. After retiring from the Madras hospital, he worked as an ophthalmic surgeon at the Tropical Diseases Hospital and taught ophthalmology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Being an international student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) can provide a distinctive and enriching experience. LSHTM is globally renowned for its research and education in public health and tropical medicine, and attracts students from more than 160 countries, creating a diverse student community.

Nevertheless, there are some potential challenges that international students may face while studying at LSHTM.
