RSTMH Early Career Grants Programme 2022 for Global Health Professionals & Innovators ( £5,000)

The RSTMH Early Career Grants Programme is still for those early in their research careers, and for whom the grants represent an exciting and important opportunity. The Early Career Grants Programme 2022 is open for applications from early career researchers and global health professionals based anywhere in the world, who have not had research funding in their own name before.

They can apply for a grant of up to £5,000 (GBP) to deliver a project over 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.

Applications can be on any area of tropical medicine or global health. RSTMH’s thematic priorities in its current strategy, plus other areas of health that are less well known are encouraged. These are listed below:

These are listed below:

  • Neglected tropical diseases, with a particular focus on their overlap with non-communicable Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), 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. The consideration of human health alongside animal health and the environment, in the context of social, economic 
    and political factors

The maximum RSTMH Early Career Grant award is £5,000 (including any taxes on relevant purchases) and for up to one year in duration.


Anyone in their early research career from any nationality based anywhere in the world can apply. The overall aim of the programme is to encourage and inspire the next generation of global health leaders and innovators to explore their ideas.

Only RSTMH members can receive the funding.

If successful, applicants who are not already members will have their membership funded by one of our partners, or RSTMH will deduct it from their award.
