About the Scholarship Provider:
Since 1907, the mission of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, which is both a charitable organization and a membership society, has been to advance the fields of tropical medicine and global health. Our goal is to reduce the number of preventable deaths and enhance people’s health in every region of the world by expanding access to healthcare and fostering greater equity.
The careers of our members are advanced thanks to the activities we organize. In addition to this, we make use of their accumulated wisdom and experience to bring about change within the industry. Our community includes people from all points in their professional lives, hailing from a diverse spectrum of backgrounds and fields of endeavor, and residing in more than 90 countries worldwide. A Board of Trustees is in charge of running the Society, which may be found in London. The Royal Society for the Preservation of Motoring History was given the “Royal” label by King George V in 1920, and the royal link has been kept alive ever since. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II serves as our Patron, and HRH Prince Charles is our President. The Princess Royal has been awarded the status of Honorary Fellow.
Sir Patrick Manson, known as the “father of tropical medicine,” served as the institution’s first president. The royal connection has been maintained ever since King George V bestowed the prefix Royal to the organization in 1920, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II served as our Patron. Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal is also an Honorary Fellow of the organization. The Royal Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (RSTMH) was founded more than a century ago, during a period in history when tropical medicine was just beginning to take shape. Today, the RSTMH is a multidisciplinary organization that is continually adapting to the shifting patterns and interpretations of contemporary tropical medicine and global health.
