There is also a small budget available for the mentor to assist the Fellow to meet their intended research aims should this be appropriate. Shortlisted candidates may also apply for a small amount of limited extra-ordinary care costs, for example to support any additional care costs for dependent person(s) incurred during the sabbatical. Fellowships should begin no later than 1 year after the application deadline (i.e. by 30th April 2021).
