The Soulsby Foundation has recently been awarded a grant by the Alborada Trust (http://www.alboradatrust.com/) of £25,000 each year for the next five years (2020-24). The Trustees plan to match this funding each year which will allow the Foundation to distribute around £50,000 on Fellowships each year.
The Foundation has received 26 applications for the 2020 Fellowships, a significant increase on last year, so this additional funding is most welcome.
The successful Fellows will be announced in June at the World One Health Congress in Edinburgh.
