ISID Research Capacity Building Grants

Deadline Date: March 15, 2024

Donor Name: International Society for Infectious Diseases

Grant Size: $1000 to $10,000

With funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), this International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID) research grant opportunity seeks to provide funding for early career researchers from LMICs living and working in the field of public health.

The International Society for Infectious Disease’s research grants are one of the Society’s signature programs and are instrumental in fulfilling ISID’s commitment to funding researchers from countries that bear the greatest health and economic burden from infectious diseases. An essential element for reducing morbidity and mortality associated with these diseases in low- and lower-middle income countries (LMICs) is the provision of training, educational support, and mentoring to scientists, allied healthcare workers, epidemiologists, physicians, veterinarians, and others confronting challenges in the countries most affected.

Each grant recipient will receive monetary support for the period of the grant and will be paired with a designated mentor from within ISID’s vast network of infectious disease professionals from around the world. At the end of the grant period, recipients will receive funding to attend an ISID event to present their findings.
