Default Re: Newton International Fellowship Guidelines

The Newton International Fellowships scheme is run by the British Academy, The Royal Society and The Academy of Medical Sciences.

The Fellowship scheme will select the very best early stage post-doctoral researchers from all over the world, and offer support for two years at UK research institutions.

The long-term aim of the scheme is to build a global pool of research leaders and encourage long-term international collaboration with the UK.

They provide grants of £24,000 per annum to cover subsistence and up to £8,000 per annum to cover research expenses, plus a one-off relocation allowance of up to £2,000.

In addition, Newton Fellows may be eligible for follow-up funding of up to £6,000 per annum for up to 5 years following the completion of the Fellowship.

The Newton International Fellowships Scheme covers researchers in the following disciplines: physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.

The scheme also covers clinical and patient orientated research, for applicants from China, India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey during the current round.


Candidates have a PhD, or will have a PhD by the time the funding starts
