Application Deadline- 3 February, 2019

The Programme funds researchers and individuals passionate about research software use and/or development. We help support them to better understand the challenges faced by their domains and to become ambassadors for better software practices in their areas of working and institutions. Our Fellows also develop skills and knowledge around software sustainability network with like-minded individuals from a wide variety of research areas.

Fellows are drawn from a wide range of areas, experience, and career stages.


Successful applicants will be allocated £3,000 to spend over fifteen months from 1st April 2019 until 31st July 2020. The funding is flexible to support activities that are beneficial to both the Fellows and the Institute: to fund travel to conferences, to setup and run workshops, to organise software sustainability sessions at domain conferences, or to host, organise or teach training events, such as Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry or Library Carpentry.

And this time, shortlisted candidates will also be invited to attend Collaborations Workshop 2019 for free (registration, travel and accommodation will be covered by the Institute).

If you have any questions about the Programme, please contact Raniere Silva, Institute Community Officer, at fellows-management@software.ac.uk.
