For established researchers to develop new knowledge, skills and ideas in one or more research centres outside the UK
The scheme may be used for:
developing new lines of research through overseas collaboration
making ‘discipline-hopping excursions’ into new areas of research
developing innovations in teaching
preparing for collaborative grant applications
observing and sharing ground-breaking techniques or practices
The maximum value of a Fellowship is £50,000.
Fellowships are tenable for between 3 and 24 months.

Deadline: 11/11/2021

Eligibility criteria:

must be resident in the UK at the time of application
must hold a post in a UK institution of higher education, or in a museum, art gallery or comparable institution, and have held such a post in the UK for at least the last three years
may not be registered for a degree, for doctoral studies, or for professional or vocational qualifications

Applicants should provide a detailed account summarising the proposed programme of activity (objectives, nature of activities, methodology, location(s) and expected outcome/gain). Applications will be considered in all subject areas except:
studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals, or research that is intended to inform clinical practice or the development of medical applications
These areas are excluded because substantial funding is available from other sources for applied medical research and the Trust’s priority is to support investigations of a fundamental nature.

Host institution
Fellowships may be held in any country or countries outside the UK. Applicants must provide clear reasons for their choice of host institution(s) and country or countries of tenure. Host institutions may be universities, museums or research institutes of any kind.
