Who can apply
Applications are welcome from individuals with clinical or non-clinical professional backgrounds and from a range of disciplines.
You must be currently based at a UK university but may choose to spend your sabbatical at another institution, for example, another university in the UK or abroad, or a think-tank, healthcare provider or policy organisation.
Applicants must submit through their university’s administrative or financial authority. Universities should ensure that there is only one fellowship application per university per funding round.
What we’re looking for
We will assess:
- Your record of academic excellence in improvement research
- The vision of your proposed fellowship work and how it will make a difference in the broad field of improvement research
- Your record of leadership in forming collaborations to maximise influence and impact
- Your commitment to advancing improvement research
Your university department
Contact your university department as early as possible in the application process. Applicants will need to have gained approval in principle from the Head of School / Vice Chancellor, or other senior post-holder as appropriate, to undertake the fellowship.
What’s expected of the host institution?
If you will be based at another institution for a sabbatical, the host should be in a position to guarantee you space and facilities for the full period of the fellowship.
