How to apply

People interested in applying for fellowships to be hosted at IfA should, in the first instance (and as early as possible), contact a relevant member of academic staff who would be prepared to sponsor any application. In conjuction with that internal sponsor, they should then contact the School's grants team who will provide support and advise on internal deadlines. Note that internal deadlines are likely to be notably in advance of the formal fellowship deadline. For fellowships with quotas, a School-wide internal review panel will assess applications and select candidates to be supported; see the central school page for instructions and any forthcoming deadlines.
