Currently the Institute runs two types of fellowship -
Collaborative Fellowships are open to applicants from non-UK institutions. These fellowships have a defined application window are awarded with a stipend to cover accommodation and travel costs for a maximum of 3 months.
Non-stipendary Fellowships are open to applicants from the UK or overseas. These fellowships can be applied for all year round, usually for a maximum period of 6 months.
Application procedure for Visiting Fellowships
Applications should consist of:

(ii) a short curriculum vitae (no more than 3 pages).
(iii) names, positions, organisations and email addresses for two referees, preferentially one UK-based.
Applicants can apply for both collaborative and the non-stipendiary fellowships within the same application. Please indicate if you are applying for both schemes in your cover letter.
Applications for the Collaborative Fellowships will be assessed by the IP Management Committee and must be submitted by Sunday 30th July 2017, 17.00 (GMT).
Non-stipendiary applications can be submitted any time, allowing at least two months before the start date of the intended visit.
