The Fellowship scheme is continuation funding aimed at building on the potential of the best candidates that come out of the Overseas Bursary stage.
Fellowship grants are up to £20,000 for a period of 3 years.
The grant will support work arising from a successful Bursary. Limited in-country travel and part of the applicant's salary can be applied for.
In addition to this, using the help of the scientific advisors already established as a result of the bursary stage, Fellows have the option of spending some time in centres outside of their research-base countries, gaining access to special facilities, libraries, seminars and conferences or temporarily attaching themselves to research groups.
