The Engineering for Development Research Fellowships are a Royal Academy of Engineering scheme funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The Royal Academy of Engineering has funding to award four researchers an Engineering for Development Research Fellowship, as long as the proposed research project meets the official ODA guidelines. These fellowships offer the same benefits as the Research Fellowship, but come with an additional ring fenced £25,000 per year to support international collaborations. Information on how this additional funding can be spent is available in the "Completing the  application form" section, under the "Resources requested’ question".
