Enabling established researchers based at a UK higher education institution to spend a period of time in overseas research centres, to develop new knowledge, skills and ideas.

Leverhulme Trust

International Academic Fellowships provide established researchers with a concentrated period based in one or more research centres outside the UK. The intention of the scheme is to provide opportunities to develop new knowledge, skills and ideas, and may for example be used for the following:

  • observing and learning groundbreaking techniques or practices
  • developing new lines of research through overseas collaboration
  • making 'discipline-hopping excursions' into new areas of research
  • developing innovations in teaching
  • exchanging ideas.

Up to £45,000 is available for a period of 3 to 12 months and the current round of awards must commence between 1 June 2018 and 1 May 2019.

Eligible costs include: reasonable replacement cover whilst the Fellow is overseas; travel to and within the overseas country or countries; a maintenance grant to meet the increased expense of living overseas; and essential research costs. Please ensure that applications do not include any ineligible costs.
