Future Leaders Fellowships will grow the strong supply of talented individuals needed to ensure a vibrant environment for research and innovation in the UK. The scheme is open to researchers and innovators from across business, universities, and other organisations. We welcome applicants from around the world.
Investment of up to £1.2 million over four years, with the ability to extend to up to seven years, will enable the next generation to benefit from outstanding support to develop their careers, and to work on difficult and novel challenges.
UKRI want to fund the best fellows no matter what their background. The Future Leaders Fellowships scheme has been developed with unprecedented levels of flexibility to support applicants from a wide range of experiences, disciplines and sectors.
Round 5 for the Fellowships is now open. Applicants must apply to the scheme with the support of their host organisation.
Outline proposals are mandatory for each applicant intending to submit to Round 5 of this scheme. The deadline for receiving these is 16:00 on 30 April 2020.
- Applicants in host organisations that are not registered with Je-S (for example, businesses that have not previously applied for a grant from a research council) can submit their outline proposal through an online form. You will still need to register with Je-S later if you wish to proceed and submit a full application.
- Applicants in host organisations that are already registered with Je-S (universities, research organisations and some businesses) will need to submit their outline proposal through that grant management system. You should ensure sufficient time to create Je-S accounts for both the fellow and any co-investigators.
The outline proposal will need to cover basic details about the proposal, including any co-investigators and project partners, a summary of the proposed fellowship and other information as appropriate.
Full applications for Round 5 must be submitted by all organisations via Je-S by 16:00 on 2 June 2020.
If you submit an outline proposal via the web form, you will need to create an account on Je-S in order to submit a full application. You should allow sufficient time to do this.
