The Daniel Turnberg Trust Fund UK/Middle East Travel Fellowship Scheme

The scheme provides opportunities for short-term exchange of medical researchers between the UK and countries in the Middle East.

It aims to offer applicants the chance to gain further research experience, learn new techniques and to foster scientific collaboration.

This scheme was launched and has been a resounding success, with twenty candidates successfully gaining travel fellowship awards through the first round of funding.

The Academy is delighted to announce the launch of the second round of funding, now open for applications.


What the scheme provides:

  • The opportunity for medical researchers and bioscientists from the Middle East to visit a research institution of their choice in the UK and the opportunity for those from the UK to visit a research institution of their choice in the Middle East.
  • Airfare and a subsistence allowance for a period of up to four weeks.
  • Funding provision to an upper limit of £4,000 per fellowship.

    The aim of the scheme is to encourage researchers to experience an alternative research environment, to learn new techniques and initiate ideas for future collaborations.

    The Fellowships are aimed primarily at young scientists embarking on a career in research.

    As part of the application process, applicants are required to identify the institution that they intend to visit and must contact and secure support from this institution and relevant department.

    The institution must confirm its willingness to host the applicants visit, as part of the Daniel Turnberg Travel Fellowship Scheme.

    The Academy is also pleased to announce an additional Travel Fellowship available specifically to applicants whose research falls within the fields of surgical technology or quality and safety.

    Applications are sought from researchers working in either of these areas.

    This fellowship will be in addition to those fellowships available through the main scheme (open to all areas within medical and bioscience research).

    Medical researchers and bioscientists from the following countries are eligible to apply: Egypt

    Deadline: 8th January.
