Our aim is to support clinicians and scientists in all disciplines of tropical medicine and global health, including the relationship between human health and animal health, in the pursuit of themes of clinical or scientific research or fieldwork.

We are currently focusing on the early-career investigator (maximum 15 years active relevant training or employment) with clear research plans, adequate supervision and institutional support and few alternative sources of funding and we are particularly looking to fund projects with a strong element of creativity and/or innovation that will have benefits beyond the academic community and will make a tangible and measurable difference.

We will consider applications for travel and training scholarships (up to £1,000) and small grants (up to £5,000) such as pump-priming grants, pilot studies or discrete elements within larger projects.

Our grants round is now open and will close on Friday 27 January 2017. All successful applicants will be informed by the middle of April and we will announce them at the end of April.

Please note that due to the high volume of applications received, we only contact successful applicants. If you do not hear from us by 15 April 2017, your application was unfortunately not successful this time round.
