The next call for International Visiting Fellows will open in March 2020

Our International Visiting Fellowship Scheme is designed to attract leading researchers to Lincoln to undertake a significant programme of engagement with a wide cross-section of the University. The scheme, which runs twice a year, provides funding and administrative support for the University’s research groups to attract to Lincoln distinguished international researchers, including policymakers, representatives of the arts, business, government and industry. While the main aim of the scheme is to foster international research collaborations, we can also host Fellows based in the UK where their visit would enhance strategically important research areas at Lincoln.
