RSTMH Early Career Grants Programme 2024 (Up to £5,000 grant)

The RSTMH Early Career Grants Programme provides grants every year to those early in their career, from anywhere in the world, to carry out their first piece of research into tropical medicine or global health.

The aim of the grant is to enable early career researchers and global health professionals in the field of tropical medicine or global health to undertake clinical or scientific research and/or either as stand-alone projects or distinct elements within a larger project. The grants programme has been established for more than 40 years and has seen significant growth. Since 2017 we have given out more than 800 awards across 66 countries.

Applications can be on any area of tropical medicine or global health including infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, neglected tropical diseases and external factors that affect global health.

Applicants for an Early Career Grant can be based anywhere in the world and can be of any nationality.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Not received research funding of £5,000 or more in their own name before
  • Have a clear research plan for which they are seeking support
  • Be employed by, or affiliated to an organisation, though we will consider applications from those not affiliated or employed. Should awardees seek to transfer to another institution during an award, written permission is required from RSTMH and this may be granted only in exceptional circumstances
  • Have access to adequate supervision, and for their supervisor to remain for the duration of the project.
  • Have the appropriate insurance to carry out the research
  • Hold a registered bank account which accepts GBP. Please note that a condition of an award is that grant funds are paid into the awardee’s personal bank account and not an institutional account. If this presents an issue, please let us know
  • Have not received an RSTMH grant before
  • Have submitted only one application for an RSTMH grant per year
  • Not be an RSTMH global assessor in the same year
  • Not be seeking funds for a project already started or completed
  • Not be a named supervisor or referee on an RSTMH grant application in the same year.

Applicants are encouraged to include costs which would enable their projects to maximize diversity and inclusion, and community participation.
