Value of Scholarship
An annual allowance of £1000 is provided for use for academic purposes including the purchase of books, and computing equipment or attendance at conferences. Unused allowances may be carried forward for up to three years. Additional grants may sometimes be made to assist with certain approved research expenses which are not covered by departmental, faculty or other sources.
The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for these fellowships:
- Early Career Research Fellowships are open to graduates, women and men, of any university who have recently or are about to complete their doctorates.
- Successful candidates will normally have submitted their theses by the commencement of the Fellowship.
- The statements of research should be no more than 1,000 words outlining the work candidates would submit in support of their applications, if requested, and the research they propose to do if elected. Please note that it will be read by people outside, as well as within, the candidate’s own discipline and should therefore be intelligible to scholars in other subjects.
How to Apply
Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College and Trinity Hall operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships. Applications will be considered by all Colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject.
A total of seven Fellowships is offered but candidates are advised that competition is likely to be intense; last year over 1000 applications were received. Candidates are warned that they are responsible for checking their eligibility to take up the post under UK immigration rules.
Full information regarding the Fellowships on offer, further particulars and registration details will be available at the Joint Application Scheme website w/c 10 October 2016: http://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/applying/fellows/jrf/
