2016-17 grants round

RSTMH Grants round is now closed. The next grants round will open in early 2018. 

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

Our focus will be 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.

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 regulations and application forms can be downloaded below. The deadline for submitting applications is 5pm BST/GMT on Friday 27 January 2017 and disbursements will be made from the end of May onwards. Please direct any queries to info@rstmh.org

Please note that due to the high volume of applications received, we will only contact successful applicants. The full list of this year's awards is available here.
