If you are unable to join this zoom event, we are planning a follow up event in the Autumn, or if you have any questions or queries regarding our Fellowships or expanded remit please email djmft@surrey.ac.uk clearly stating AHRC in the subject line and we will be in contact as soon as we can.

UKRI sponsored Daphne Jackson Fellowships will now be offered in all fields of research in universities and research institutions in the UK and Republic of Ireland.  Whilst the inclusion of AHRC represents an expansion of the Trust’s previous focus on STEM and social sciences, this development remains true to the original vision of Daphne, who was motivated by a desire to ensure that individuals who would otherwise be lost to UK research are returned to meaningful careers. It reflects the changing priorities of UK research, the increasingly multidisciplinary nature of research, reinforces the relationship between the Trust and UKRI in what are challenging times for UK HE and research, and enhances and widens our existing national profile.

The Trust’s remit has gradually evolved since its inception in 1992 to reflect the changing realities of the UK research landscape; Fellowships were offered to men as well as women from 2003, the numbers of Fellowships in social sciences have been increasing for the last five years and from 2019, Fellowships can be offered in the Republic of Ireland.
