Applicants of any nationality are eligible for the ‘European Fellowship scheme’. However there are some additional criteria to be aware of:

  • You must not have been living or working in the UK for more than 12 of the 36 months prior to the submission deadline of 13 September 2016.
  • You must have either a doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent) or have undertaken at least 48 months of equivalent full-time research – i.e. research undertaken since you have achieved a qualification that would allow you to undertake a doctoral degree in the UK.

There are some exceptions to the above, e.g. parental leave, military service, refugee status. The complete rules can be consulted in the Guide for Applicants on:
