Information and links on fellowships, with relevance to early career researchers in the College.
Winning a fellowship is an exciting first step to embarking on an independent career and leading your own research team. These pages provide information about fellowships with relevance to early career researchers within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine.
Writing fellowship applications takes significant amounts of time and energy. We encourage you to discuss your fellowship application with senior colleagues well in advance of the submission date, often up to a year before, and to choose the right fellowship to fit your research niche and career stage.
The University has extensive mentoring and academic development programmes and dedicated resources to help you craft your proposal. These can be found at the Institute for Academic Development (IAD), who offer workshops and training in fellowship application writing.
