Newton International Fellowships Scheme

Aim of the award

The Newton International Fellowships Scheme is delivered by the British Academy, the Royal Society and the Academy of Medical Sciences. The Scheme has been established to select the very best early stage post-doctoral researchers from all over the world and enable them to work at UK research institutions for a period of two years. The Scheme covers researchers in all disciplines covered by the two academies – physical, natural and social sciences, and the humanities.

Objectives of the Newton International Fellowships Scheme

  • To ensure the UK engages with the best post-doctoral researchers, across all disciplines of physical, natural and social sciences, and the humanities, from around the world.
  • To provide an opportunity for post-doctoral researchers at an early career stage from any country outside the UK to work at a UK research institution for two years.
  • To foster long-term relations between Newton Fellows and the UK research base through the establishment of an alumni programme for former Fellows of this Scheme. The alumni programme will include the possible provision of further funding for Newton Fellows for up to 10 years for follow-on activities, to enable links with UK based researchers to be maintained and developed. This is expected to facilitate, in the longer term, improved access to international centres of excellence for UK-based researchers.

Eligibility requirements

The applicant must:

  • have a PhD, or applicants in the final stages of their PhD will be accepted provided that the PhD will be completed (including viva) before the start date of the Fellowship.  Confirmation of award of the PhD will be required before any Fellowship award is confirmed;
  • Applicants should have no more than 7 years of active full time postdoctoral experience at the time of application (discounting career breaks, but including teaching experience and/or time spent in industry);
  • be working outside the UK;
  • not hold UK citizenship;
  • be competent in oral and written English;
  • have a clearly defined and mutually-beneficial research proposal agreed with a UK host researcher.

Applicants should ensure that they meet all the eligibility requirements, which are explained in the scheme notes.

Level of grant and tenure

Newton Fellowships last for two years. Funding consists of £24,000 per annum for subsistence costs, and up to £8,000 per annum research expenses, as well as a one-off payment of up to £2,000 for relocation expenses. Awards include a contribution to the overheads incurred, at a rate of 50% of the total award to the visiting researcher.

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.

Newton Fund

This is the first year that additional Fellowships will be supported through the Newton Fund, specifically for applicants from Newton Fund partner countries. This new initiative aims to develop long-term sustainable growth and welfare of partner countries through building research and innovation capacity, and forms part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance commitment. Newton Fund countries include Brazil, China, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey.

This is in partnership with the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society.
