Newton International Fellowship
The British Academy, the Royal Society, and the Academy of Medical Sciences run the Newton International Fellowship scheme 2019. It will select the very best early stage post-doctoral researchers that not hold UK citizenship and should be working outside of the UK at the point of application , and offer support for two years at UK research institutions. The long-term aim of the scheme is to build a global pool of research leaders and encourage long-term international collaboration with the UK.
The scheme provides grants of £24,000 per annum to cover subsistence (tax exempt) and up to £8,000 per annum to cover research expenses, a one-off payment of up to £3,000 for relocation expenses in year one only (£2,000 for EEA Nationals)
In addition, Newton International Fellows may be eligible for follow-up funding of up to £6,000 per annum for up to 5 years following the completion of the Fellowship.
