Eligibility for the Scholarship

Rothamsted International-University of Nottingham (Ri-Uon) Fellowships

To be eligible, the applicants must be following all the given criteria:

  • Eligible Countries: Scholarships are available to students from low- to middle- income countries.
  • Entrance Requirements: The candidate must meet the following criteria.
    • The candidate must be of doctoral status, with at least two years’ post-doctoral experience. Candidates without higher degrees must have equivalent research experience to be considered eligible for the scheme.
    • Applications will not be considered where the main objective of the visit is research leading to a higher degree for the Candidate.
    • The Candidate must be a citizen or be based exclusively in a low- to middle- income country.  note that this will be defined as the countries listed on the DAC list of ODA recipients
    • Candidates who have extensive and/or continuous employment in a high-income country are not eligible for RI Fellowships.
    • It is essential that the candidate returns to employment in their home country where the experience gained through the RI Fellowship can be applied.
  • Applications are submitted by the UK supervisor but must be of relevance to research in the candidate’s home country. It is therefore essential that the candidate makes contact with the UK supervisor and helps to co-develop the research proposal. Proposals with minimal contributions from the candidate, or supervisor, are unlikely to succeed.
  • In addition to the support of the UK supervisor, applications must also have the approval from the relevant Department Head at Rothamsted Research and Professor David Salt, Director of the Future Food Beacon at UoN.

Application Procedure

How to Apply: 

Step 1:

  • The candidate has a research idea in mind with direct relevance to development issues in the Candidate’s home country.
  • Candidate checks to see that their proposal falls within the agricultural, biological, environmental, mathematical or computational sciences, and is aligned to the University of Nottingham Global 2020 Strategy and the Rothamsted Science Strategy.
  • Candidates must then identify a potential Supervisor at University of Nottingham or Rothamsted Research and seek their agreement and input to co-develop a fellowship proposal. The initial Supervisor will then identify a suitable supervisor at the partnering institute to co-supervise the Fellowship
  • Note: Candidates may find the Supervisor, either through prior contact with that person, recommendations via colleagues, scientific literature searches or by selecting the relevant researcher from the University of Nottingham and the Rothamsted Research staff directory

Step 2:

  • Once a Supervisor at UoN and Rothamsted has been identified and they are in agreement to co-develop a research project with the candidate, the lead Supervisor requests an application form and further guidance from Rothamsted International.
  • Note: application forms cannot be downloaded from this website and must be submitted by the Supervisor.
  • Supervisors and Candidate co-develop the fellowship proposal.
  • Lead supervisor submits the Fellowship application in advance of the stated deadline.

Step 3:

  • Applications are reviewed by a panel of experts.
  • This is a competitive scheme and the Panel’s decision will be communicated to the Candidate and Supervisor – typically within two months of the application deadline.
  • Successful Candidate and their Supervisors agree on a start date for the project.
