Overview:

ISTM is pleased to offer Travel Medicine Research Grants to ISTM Members each year. Grants are awarded through a peer-review process implemented by the ISTM Research and Awards Committee. The awards are designed to stimulate travel medicine research by supporting comprehensive research projects or, for larger projects, providing support for pilot studies to enable researchers to collect data/test hypotheses so that they can then apply to other agencies for more substantive research grants.

The ISTM has devoted special funding for research in resource-limited countries and emerging markets for the again this year. This funding is in addition to the annual research grant program already in place. The society is offering this additional research grant opportunity to address research gaps in our knowledge on health issues related to international travelers crossing borders between developing countries or from developing countries to developed countries. It is hoped that these grants will stimulate travel medicine research by supporting comprehensive research projects or, for larger projects, provide support for pilot studies to enable researchers to collect data or test hypotheses.

Typical awards will be in the range of USD 5,000 to USD 10,000 although a single grant up to USD 40,000 will be considered for exceptional proposals.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
