Future Leaders Fellowships scheme

The next round of the Future Leaders Fellowships scheme is now open. Future Leaders Fellowships could provide an individual with outstanding potential in your business with the funding and support to turn high impact research and innovation focused ideas into reality.

Through this scheme, your business could:

  • Receive funding of up to £1.5 million over four years
  • Attract or retain a talented innovator with untapped potential
  • Develop a significant new or enhanced research or innovation capability
  • Build networks and collaborate with other organisations

New for this year: a reduced hours fellowship for additional flexibility. Applicants can spend between 60 to 100 percent of their working time on this award, and up to 40 percent of their time focused on other activities within the business.

For all the details on what’s involved, how to apply as well as hearing from current future leaders, visit the Future Leaders Fellowships web pages.

We’ve also created a new Future Leaders Fellowships blog with further insights and some tips for writing your application.
