This scheme enables research groups at Warwick to engage with distinguished, international researchers, including policy makers, representatives of the arts, business, government and industry. Visiting Fellows must be nominated by a Warwick academic and during their visit it is expected that the Fellow(s) will contribute to the wider activity of the university, engaging with a wide cross-section of the research community. For this reason it is expected that visits will last approx. 10 days however, Fellows can be hosted for up to 10 weeks. There are three calls per year. Further details and guidance are found in the Funding Guidelines document.
All applications to this scheme must now be uploaded through the Online Submission System.
