Parliamentary Academic Fellowship Scheme

11th July 2017

The UK Parliament is piloting an Academic Fellowship Scheme that will offer academic researchers at every stage of their career the rare opportunity to work on specific projects from inside Westminster’s walls.

The Parliamentary Academic Fellowship Scheme is offering academics from different subject areas and at any career stage the opportunity to come and work in Parliament.

Funded by monies made available to universities to increase the impact of their research, the Scheme includes opportunities for academics to work on specific projects proposed by offices inside Parliament, as well as enabling academics to propose a project of their choosing.

The Scheme has been endorsed by the Research Councils in particular, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). 

This call is now open. Please note, the deadlines for this call have recently been extended.

Deadline for outline applications: midnight 4 September 2017
