Newton Fund Researcher Links Travel Grants - UK and Peru (deadline: 25th October 2017)

Researcher Links Travel Grants provide financial support for early-career researchers to undertake an international research placement to strengthen links for future collaboration, build research capacity in developing economies, and enhance the researcher's career opportunities.

Newton Fund

Researchers that reside in the UK can apply for funding to visit a university or research institution in one of the partner countries, and those residing in one of the partner countries can apply for funding to come to the UK. These grants are funded under the Newton Fund, a UK Government initiative funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), together with partner funders from around the world. The Fund aims to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of low-income and vulnerable populations.

  • Duration of visit: 4-12 weeks depending on the country
  • Priority areas: Partner countries may specify priority areas and will only accept applications within these. Priority areas are listed in the guidelines document (download section).
  • ODA requirement: All applications must meet the required relevance to economic development or social welfare (see guidelines for further information) of the partner country. 

For eligibility criteria apply please refer to the guidelines document available here
