Researchers, clinicians and professionals working in tropical medicine or global health are invited to apply to receive a travel scholarship to attend the European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH), held 16–20 September 2019.
Priority will be given to:
· RSTMH members or Fellows based in a low- or middle-income country
· Those early in their careers, who have few alternative sources of funding
We would like to ensure as many researchers and professionals that are students or early in their careers to apply for a travel scholarship as possible.
With such a range of sectors we cannot easily define early career in terms of specific career positions. We have therefore used guidance around the profile of applicant that may be suitable for a travel scholarship.
Applicants should meet this profile and the applicant’s referee should comment on this as part of the reference and application process.
Those who have been awarded a small grant or travel scholarship from RSTMH in the last 2 years are not eligible to apply.
The maximum value of a travel scholarship is £3,000 and will cover registration to the RSTMH Annual Meeting, flights, visas, accommodation for two nights and meals for the duration of the meeting. RSTMH may make travel and accommodation arrangements directly.
Applications will be assessed from now until 17:00 (5pm) on Wednesday 12 June BST (British Summer Time). Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered. Awards will be made from the end of June 2019.
