Eligibility and how to apply

If you are a resident of a low or low-to-middle income country and have never been an RSTMH member, or if you were a member but had to lapse due to financial hardship, you are eligible to apply for the fund. The awardees are expected to demonstrate their engagement with RSTMH during their years of membership through writing or content creation, volunteering, member recruitment, or attending events.

In 2023, four candidates were awarded the President's Fund and had their membership paid in full for three years, worth £360.00. Applications for the 2024 Presidents Fund will open in June 2024.
