Grants and other funding activities

TDR funds specific research projects in diseases of poverty, which cover infectious diseases and the culture and environment that contribute to these problems. We also support the development of individuals and institutions in the countries where these diseases are prevalent.

Below are the current opportunities.

Calls for grant applications or/and letters of interest


Postgraduate training grants now available

Seven universities provide Masters and PhD level degrees that focus on implementation research. Applications need to be submitted to the universities.


Consultancy opportunity

Submissions for proposals due 18 July 2015

Three requests for proposals to help develop new health R&D fund

Intentions to bid will be accepted until 22 June 2015 at 23:59 CET
Full proposals will be accepted until 5 July 2015 at 23:59 CET
