Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship Program 2024

The Royal Academy of Engineering is excited to announce its Research Fellowship Program, designed for early-career researchers worldwide who have been awarded their PhD within the last four years. This prestigious scheme, funded by the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), offers five years of funding with a maximum contribution of £625,000 per applicant, covering 80% of full economic costs. The program aims to support exceptional researchers in engineering to establish their independence and international reputation, pursue ambitious engineering research, and advocate for STEM disciplines.


Benefits of the Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship Program include financial support and mentoring from an Academy Fellow, reduced administrative duties, training opportunities, networking with other researchers, and the chance to enhance research track records. The scheme is open to researchers of all nationalities and ages, with the requirement that the Research Fellowships must be held at a UK higher education institution or research organization eligible for UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) funding. The selection process involves three stages, culminating in interviews conducted by a panel of Academy Fellows to determine the top candidates for the awards. The application deadline for the upcoming cycle is September 18, 2024, with applications to be submitted through the Academy’s Grants Management System.
