The 2024 RSTMH Early Career Grants Programme is now open for applications. The Programme provides more than 200 grants every year to those early in their careers to carry out their first piece of research into tropical medicine or global health. It encourages and supports the next generation of tropical medicine and global health professionals growing their skills and networks, improving confidence and enabling the development and dissemination of interesting and innovative outcomes in tropical medicine and global health.
Early career researchers and global health professionals based anywhere in the world, who have not had research funding in their own name before, can apply for a grant of up to £5,000 (GBP) to deliver a project within one year. The projects can be on any topic related to tropical medicine and global health, from across the research spectrum of lab, translation, implementation, and policy.
