Please see the scheme notes for more information, including eligibility criteria and the application process.


The Newton International Fellowship Scheme was established in 2008 to select the very best early career postdoctoral researchers from all over the world, and enable them to work at UK research institutions for two years. The scheme is offered by the Royal Society, British Academy and Academy of Medical Sciences.

The aims of the fellowship are to:

* Support the development and training of postdoctoral researchers at an early stage of their career from any country outside the UK, by providing an opportunity to work at a UK research institution for two years.

* Ensure the best postdoctoral researchers across all relevant disciplines from around the world are supported in the UK.

* Foster long-term relations between Newton International Fellows and the UK research base through the establishment of an alumni programme for former Fellows of this Scheme. The alumni programme will include the possible provision of further funding for Newton International Fellows for follow-on activities, to enable links with UK-based researchers to be maintained and developed. Please note that due to funding constraints, the alumni programme is not currently available for Newton International Fellows conducting clinical or patient oriented research, except from India.

Subjects covered: Physical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. Eligible applicants for these disciplines can apply from any country outside the UK. The scheme also covers clinical and patient orientated research through the Academy of Medical Sciences, but applicants can only apply if they are from Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and South Africa during the current round.
