Research Fellowships

Type of funding: Research Fellowships

For experienced researchers in any discipline, to complete a piece of research
Research Fellowships are open to experienced researchers, particularly those who are or have been prevented by routine duties from completing a programme of original research.
Value
The maximum value of a Fellowship is £60,000.
Duration
Fellowships are tenable for between 3 and 24 months.

Deadline: 11/11/2021

Eligibility criteria:

Applicants must:
hold a post in a UK institution of higher education, or in a museum, art gallery or comparable institution that will extend beyond the duration of the Fellowship
be experienced researchers, particularly those prevented by routine duties from undertaking or completing a research programme
be resident in the UK at the time of application
be a permanent member of the UK scholarly community and able to demonstrate an established track record in their chosen area of research
Candidates who have held a Research Fellowship may apply for a second award, but at least seven years should have elapsed since the previous application. Candidates who have held an International Fellowship are eligible to apply if at least three years have elapsed between their application for the International Fellowship and the Research Fellowship.

Applications will be considered in all subject areas with the following exceptions:
studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals
research that is intended to inform clinical practice or the development of medical applications
There are two reasons for this: substantial funding is available from other sources for applied medical research; the Trust’s priority is to support investigations of a fundamental nature.
