    from New Delhi, Delhi


Hello! I am Himanshi Malik, a 23-year-old aspiring Neuroscientist. I have been admitted into Masters in Neuroscience course at Ireland’s top university, Trinity College Dublin, beginning from September 2021. I pursued my under-graduation in B.Sc. Life Sciences from Miranda House, University of Delhi, and I graduated in 2018.
Throughout my undergraduate degree, I have received academic awards, assisted in research projects, and participated in and led several undergraduate events and voluntary organizations. At the culmination of the program, I achieved a CGPA of 8.97 (first division).

After graduating, I decided to gain professional experience and self-fund my aspiration to study abroad at a renowned institution. Currently, I have been working as a Research analyst in Oncology and Neurology disease areas in the Healthcare industry.

I have been part of the workforce since 2018 (3 years) and saving up for my education. I am currently trying to secure a partial educational loan (without collateral). However, my personal funds along with the education loan are not enough to cover both tuition fees of the course (INR 22 Lakh (approx.) and the living expenses in Dublin. Thus, I am in need of a little help - raising INR 5 Lakh for the annual tuition fee to secure my seat.

I've always tried to be self-sufficient, and even as a college student, I explored a variety of ways to put my skills to work and fund my own tuition fee and other projects.

But due to the COVID pandemic, and a lack of family finances, I had to put my plans to pursue Masters's on hold last year in 2020.
A few scholarships/funding opportunities were also canceled as the organizations halted their aid due to the pandemic. Thus, I request you to help me fund my education.

Future plans and research interests:
My decision to apply to the M.Sc. program stems from my career goal of becoming a researcher in neuroscience to better understand the complexities of the brain. After completing my master’s degree, I wish to continue my path of research and pursue a Ph.D. My research interests are multi-disciplinary and are focused on bridging a gap between lab research and novel treatments for various neurodevelopmental and mental disorders, that ultimately aims to improve global mental health
I am extremely gratified to have secured a place in M.Sc. Neuroscience at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and I am confident that the course will provide me specialized skills and an opportunity to learn and indulge in cross-platform research and thus give a smooth head start to my career.

I am creating this fundraiser because I wish to reach the goal to be able to fund my education. I request you to help me out by contributing, or by sharing this fundraiser.

Any contribution helps and it would really mean a lot. Thank you in advance!

  • International (Non-EU) annual tuition fees: € 23,992
