British Ecological Society Overseas Fellowship Scheme: The British Ecological Society Overseas Fellowship scheme provides grants for ecologists in developing countries to carry out innovative ecological research.

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.
