Sir Ratanji Dalal research scholarship for tropical medicine/surgery research

This research scholarship supports a project in either tropical surgery or tropical medicine.

The scholarship

There is one scholarship available, tenable for one year, to the value of £20,000. It may be held in any institution in Britain – or overseas – approved by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Royal College of Physicians of London, who jointly award the scholarship.

If the research will not be carried out in a tropical country, the relevance of the project to tropical medicine or surgery should be made clear.


The scholarship is open to all medical practitioners registered in any part of the Commonwealth.
