What is the Fellowship Programme?

The Fellowship Programme, run by the Software Sustainability Institute, funds researchers in exchange for their expertise and advice. Being a Fellow also helps you develop skills and knowledge in the area of software sustainability. Each Fellow is allocated £3,000 to spend over fifteen months. The funding is flexible to support activities that are beneficial to both the Fellows and the Institute, with Fellows drawn from a wide range of areas, experience, and career stages. The Fellowship is open to UK-based applicants.
