Small grants for early career researchers in tropical medicine or global health



Supporting Information

The NIHR Global Health Research programme has partnered with the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (RSTMH) to fund small grants to early career global health researchers worldwide.

The purpose of the small grants, which are up to £5,000 each, is to enable early career researchers and global health professionals to undertake clinical or scientific research or fieldwork, as stand-alone projects or distinct elements within larger projects.

The grants are aimed in particular at researchers in tropical medicine or global health who have not received funding in their own name before.

Applications on the following thematic areas are encouraged:

  • Neglected tropical diseases, with a particular focus on their overlap with non-communicable diseases and the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Malaria, with a particular focus on drug resistance
  • One Health and wider planetary health (human health alongside animal health and the environment, in the context of social, economic and political factors)
  • Emerging diseases
  • Drug resistant infections

The deadline for applications (including references) is 5pm GMT 27 April 2020.
