Deadline: 8 May 2017

The Wellcome Foundation is seeking applications for its “Intermediate Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine” to support research that will improve public health and tropical medicine at a local, national and global level.

This scheme helps mid-career researchers from low- and middle-income countries establish independent research programmes in those countries.

    • personal removal expenses
    • research expenses, directly related to proposal
  • Applicant can also apply for public engagement funds to involve the public in his/her research and inspire learning.
  • After completing a year of this fellowship, applicant can apply for enhancement funds. These funds allow him/her to explore new opportunities or paths of discovery, or support unanticipated costs.
