Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Fellowships and Scholarships

October 15, 2015

The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 gives outstanding scholars and researchers 25 different scholarships and fellowships every year. Here are a sampling of those most relevant to SFU grad students and postdocs, but definitely review the website - maybe you'll be inspired for what to do next!

Research Fellowships: If you have 3 years or less postdoctoral research experience and are looking to conduct your own amazing research, then these Fellowships in Science and Engineering might be for you! There are up to 9 awards of up to 3 years duration, and with a stipend of up to 33,500GBP a year plus up to 6,000GBP per year for research and travel to conferences. Closes February 18, 2016.

Built Environment Fellowship: If you're a design student looking at built environments, you may want to have a closer look at this position. The Commission is looking for a researcher to look at best practices and new ways of introducing cycling into busy and crowded city spaces, using London as the model. This is a two year fellowship, with a stipend of 50,000GBP per year.

All terms and conditions and application forms (as well as info on those other awards!) can be found on the Royal Commission website.
