Guidance on applying
On 15 February 2023, we hosted an Applicant Guidance Webinar. You can watch the recording below or here.
We are planning a series of more detailed online sessions on aspects of the application form for RSTMH members in March. These will include developing a research question, forming a budget, selecting the best methodology, determining realistic outcomes. Information about these sessions will be updated here in the coming weeks.
