Presidents Fund

Submissions are now open

Originally established in 1991, the Presidents Fund aims to help RSTMH members from low and lower middle income countries pay for their annual membership. 

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 2022, four candidates were awarded the President's Fund and had their membership paid in full for three years, worth £360.00. This year, we hope to continue supporting our members and welcoming new members into our community.

Submissions for 2023 are now closed and the winners will be announced in due course. Applications for the 2024 Presidents Fund will open on 29 April 2024.
