Return to Research Support Bursary

The Return to Research Support Bursary is intended to provide support for those seeking to resume an academic research career to develop a proposal suitable for submission to the STFC Fellowship scheme. The period of absence from active research could be due, for example, to family or other caring responsibilities, long-term illness or working in a non-research role.
