The Stapledon Trust Fellowships

Stapledon Travelling Fellowships are now available

 

Awards can be used to support visits between the UK and other countries to develop studies on any aspect of grassland science. 

Travelling Fellowship awards cover periods of 1 - 6 months and are normally sufficient to meet economy travel and basic living costs.

Priority is given to supporting younger and mid-career scientists who present applications with clear proposals. Work to be undertaken should be challenging but feasible within the time available and the experience and skills gained from the Fellowship should aim to enhance the applicant’s career development.

UK-based applicants can apply to visit any other country. Non-UK applicants can only apply for a Fellowship to visit the UK. The deadline is 31 October 2018* with decisions being made in December.

Potential applicants should discuss their proposals with their intended host before applying so the application presents a clear plan of the intended project. All applications should be submitted through the UK institution involved; i.e. the workplace of UK applicants, or the proposed UK host for overseas applicants.

Awards are not available to support PhD studies, or for conference attendance (although the timing of a Fellowship visit may be arranged to take advantage of conferences). The host organization is required to meet or waive any 'bench' fees.

Application is simple and if you need help or advice in your application please contact Mike Steele at mike.steelesmt@yahoo.com

Please apply online http://www.stapledontrust.org.uk/Fellowship.asp using the appropriate form on the website. A signed hard copy of the final version should be submitted by the UK partner (the applicant's proposed host/ existing workplace).

 

*The Trust will, exceptionally, also consider applications at other times where the annual cycle might be inappropriate (such cases should be discussed with the Trust Secretary)

The STAPLEDON INNOVATION FELLOWSHIP is a new and flexible scheme intended to provide awards to individuals to support studies of innovative practices, so that new knowledge or skills may be obtained and applied to the benefit of the grassland and forage sector. Successful applicants will be required to help communicate this new knowledge to others. The scheme is funded by the Stapledon Memorial Trust and supported by the British Grassland Society. It is open to anyone living in the UK who is working in grassland farming or a grassland-related business or profession. Visits supported by the scheme can be made within the UK or to other countries. Please note this scheme is not intended to support attendance at a conference.

Application is simple and if you need help or advice in your application please contact Mike Steele at mike.steelesmt@yahoo.com
