Leading international researchers to begin fellowships in UK

26 November 2010

The third round of Newton International Fellowships has been awarded jointly by the UK’s national research academies – the British Academy, The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society. The Fellowship programme is a government-sponsored initiative to ensure that the UK engages with the world’s most promising academics.

The Newton International Fellowships provide an opportunity for some of the most talented early career post-doctoral researchers working overseas to carry out world class research in UK institutions across all disciplines of humanities, engineering, natural and social sciences. Fellows will receive support in the region of £100,000 each for a two year period in the UK.
 
The collaborations and links formed by Newton Fellows during the course of their Fellowship will continue to be supported by the availability of follow-on funding of up to £6,000 per year each, for up to ten years to help develop lasting international networks.
