7 out of 10 Daphne Jackson Fellows remain in research for at least 2 years after successfully completing their fellowship

Your research project

Your research project must be novel and challenging, but achievable within the timescales of the Fellowship. The project is your opportunity to acquire professional skills and knowledge that will put you back on a par with colleagues who have not taken a break from research.

Your research proposal

The research project forms the basis of a proposal which should include the objectives and an outline of the project, the methodologies to be used and a chart showing how the project can be carried out in the time available. The Trust expects to receive your draft proposal within 6 months of your invitation to apply.
