The RSTMH Early Career Grants Programme 2023 is now accepting applications. The Program’s overarching goal is to support and inspire the next generation of global health professionals by giving them the chance to work on initiatives that potentially advance tropical medicine or global health.
The projects may cover any area of tropical medicine and global health research, including lab, translation, implementation, and policy. They may also take up to a year to complete.
- The maximum RSTMH Early Career Grant award is £5,000 (including any taxes on relevant purchases) and for up to one year in duration.
- Anyone early in their research career with any nationality based anywhere in the world can apply.
- Only RSTMH members can receive the funding, but anyone can apply.
- If successful, applicants who are not already members of RSTMH will have their membership funded by one of RSTMH partners, or RSTMH will deduct it from their award.
