Funding and Fellowships Sponsored by ASTMH

Please note: To share equally among everyone in our tropmed community, only one ASTMH (including the Subgroups) award, travel award, fellowships and/or medal will be awarded to a single recipient in a given year.

Those who receive an ASTMH-sponsored fellowship will not be eligible to receive any Subgroup research/travel awards or ASTMH Travel Awards.
