Applying for a fellowship?

Fellowships are one route to developing a research portfolio towards becoming a leader in health research. They can be a useful way of funding people’s time, research projects and training development. Fellowships are available from a range of funders to support people at different points in their research path.

Fellowship support

Talking to people who have been through the process of applying and being awarded fellowships as well as talking to people who have helped others develop applications may help you to avoid the common pitfalls and demystify the process. There is a list of SAPC members who have had fellowships and are willing to share their experience.  

SAPC PHoCuS members have been awarded fellowships from a range of funders including:

  • National Institute for Health Research
  • Wellcome Trust
  • Medical Research Council

We aim to support people in getting fellowships through organising

  • Virtual meeting on applying for NIHR fellowships
  • Workshops at the SAPC AGM (including ‘Preparing for your fellowship interview’)
  • Linking people who are developing fellowships with members who have been awarded fellowships to share their experiences and tell you what they wished they’d known when they started the journey.
