Bridging Funds for Research Fellows

This scheme is open. Heads of Schools should email nominations for candidates for this scheme to

About the scheme

Do you have a post-doctoral member of staff who is currently supported on an externally funded research fellowship, where the candidate is the principal applicant named on that award?  

Are they coming to the end of their fellowship, and looking to apply for renewal, or seeking to apply for a more senior fellowship award to continue their work?

Do they need bridging funding to prepare the very best case possible for their renewal?

If the answer is yes to all three questions, then the EBI can provide bridging funds, up to a maximum of £40,000 per candidate, to help bridge them between their current fellowship and the renewal.  For this scheme, we need Heads of School to match the award made using EBI funds, with internal UoB funding.
