Apply for Newton Fund Researcher Links Travel Grants!

Deadline: 19 September 2017

The Newton Fund together with a UK Government initiative funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), is seeking applications for its “Researcher Links Travel Grants” to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of low-income and vulnerable populations.

Researcher Links Travel Grants provide financial support for early-career researchers to undertake an international research placement to strengthen links for future collaboration, build research capacity in developing economies, and enhance the researcher’s career opportunities.

Programme Objectives

All Newton Fund Researcher Links Travel Grants have the following three overarching objectives:

  • Support international development-relevant research – Travel Grants are intended to support research areas relevant to the economic development and social welfare of partner countries.
  • Contribute to capacity building of early career researchers – The proposal should include a description of the capacity building potential of the project (both for the individual applicant, and other potential beneficiaries), and the longer term impact that the project could achieve.
  • Establish new research links or develop existing links – Travel Grants are intended to either support new links, or to develop existing links with the potential for longer term sustainability.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants must be based either in the UK, or in the partner countries, and be affiliated with a recognised publicly funded research establishment or public or private Higher Education Institution. For-profit organisations are not eligible to receive any grant funds.
  • Travel may only be between the UK and partner country, but can be in either direction.
  • Generally Travel Grants are only open to early-career researchers.
  • Partner Countries: Philippines, Indonesia, South Africa.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted online via given website.
