POST's Parliamentary Academic Fellowship Scheme

The Parliamentary Academic Fellowships Scheme: Directed Call is now a rolling scheme


Following the success of POST’s Parliamentary Academic Fellowship Scheme pilot, POST’s Knowledge Exchange Unit (KEU) has reopened the scheme. As before, the scheme has two streams: a directed call and an open call.

In December 2019, the directed call reopened with 14 projects proposed by UK Parliament. The application window for those projects has now closed. However, this has now become a rolling scheme, and UK Parliament will now issue projects at any point, according to its needs.    

Through the rolling scheme, offices across Parliament will issue projects, which they would like an academic fellow to conduct. These projects will include contributing to core work of the office, filling gaps in expertise, building staff capacity and skills, informing parliamentary scrutiny, analysing and evaluating parliamentary practices, or helping to grow Parliament’s academic networks. Fellowship projects for which we are currently seeking fellows are listed here, with details on how to apply listed below.
