The British Academy Researchers at Risk Fellowships 2022 is now accepting applications.
Natural sciences, medical and health sciences, engineering, humanities, social sciences, and the arts will all be covered by the Fellowships, which will be awarded via UK-based organizations.
The Program aims to supplement and expand on the work already being done by UK institutions, such as through their existing collaboration with Cara (the Council for At-Risk Academics) as members of the Cara Universities Network, which allows them to offer additional two-year fellowships to at-risk researchers with funding of around £37,000 per year. Researchers and innovators who are funded by this program will be able to take up short fellowships in UK universities to continue their research, improve their skills, and form long-term collaborative relationships with their UK counterparts.
The awards are scheduled to last up to two years, with a commencement date to be determined in consultation with the British Academy. The total sum available each year is about £37,000 (£74,000 over two years).
