The application form is now available online on the Flexi-Grant Application system. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 27 March 2019, 3pm UK time.

Purpose of the Scheme
The Newton International Fellowships aim to attract the most promising early-career post-doctoral researchers from overseas in the fields of the natural sciences, physical sciences, medical sciences, social sciences, and humanities from around the world. The Fellowships enable researchers to work for two years at a UK research institution with the aim of fostering long-term international collaborations. Additional Newton International Fellowships will be supported through the Newton Fund, specifically for applicants from Newton Fund partner countries which include Brazil, China, India, Mexico, South Africa, and Turkey, subject to additional funding.

Eligibility
Applicants must have a PhD or be in the final stages of their PhD and should have no more than seven years of active full time postdoctoral experience at the time of application. Additionally, applicants must be working outside the UK and not hold UK citizenship.

Level of Award
Newton International Fellows will receive an allowance of £24,000 (tax exempt) to cover subsistence and up to £8,000 to cover research expenses in each year of the Fellowship. A one-off relocation allowance of up to £2,000 is also available.

Applicants may also be eligible to receive follow-on alumni funding following the tenure of their Fellowship to support networking activities with UK-based researchers.
