2019 grants round

RSTMH has launched a funding programme for early career researchers in the fields of global health and tropical medicine.

It’s open to people working in all sectors and of all nationalities, based anywhere in the world. The deadline is 15 April and the grants are for up to GBP £5,000.

The purpose of the grants are to enable early career researchers and global health professionals in the field of tropical medicine or global health to undertake clinical or scientific research or fieldwork, as stand-alone projects or distinct elements within a larger project.

Applications focused on the thematic areas listed in RSTMH’s five-year strategy will be prioritised. These are listed below:

  • Neglected tropical diseases, with a particular focus on their overlap with non-communicable diseases and the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Malaria, with a particular focus on drug resistance
  • One Health and wider planetary health. The consideration of human health alongside animal health, and the environment, in the context of social, economic and political factors
  • Topical issues including, but not limited to, emerging diseases
  • Drug resistant infections
