2024 Early Career Grants Programme opens for applications


Deadline : 12pm 22nd, April

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.

This year we are delighted to announce that due to support from NNIHR, with UK International Development from the UK government, JCPET and IACS we will be able to provide at least 230 awards. NIHR will support applicants based in and carrying out research in LMICs on any topic. IACS will support applications on the topic of scabies, and JCPET on the topic of One Health. Other funding partners will be announced over the coming weeks. RSTMH will support the highest scoring applications that do not meet the criteria of our donor partners.


We will be running a guidance webinar on 20 February 2024 at 11:00am GMTSign up here.
