ACCEA 2016 timetable

node lead section
Wednesday, 30 March 2016

ACCEA have now announced the timetable for their awards for 2016 and RSTMH is able to provide support to members who are applying. This e-mail is to set out the timetable for those seeking RSTMH support, either for new award applications or for renewal of an existing award.

The absolute cut-off for members who are requesting RSTMH support is 09:00 on Monday 18 April, in order for the committee to rank applications and provide supporting citations before the final closing date of the scheme on 16 May.

Please submit your applications, using the national forms, available from the ACCEA website to

Late applications will not be considered.

Applications should be submitted concurrently for support from your employing Trust and/or academic institution, other groups for which work is done (eg honorary contracts) and to the relevant Royal College. Multiple applications to similar specialist societies are discouraged unless the curriculum vitae clearly has many separate areas meriting support.

National regulations only allow us to support a limited number of applications and the total number of available new awards has been reduced markedly in recent years.

The criteria for successful renewal of existing awards are much more stringent than in the past. If applying for renewal, as much effort is needed in preparation of your application form as if you are applying for a new award.
