Full guidelines are on the British Academy's website.
This scheme provides full funding for a three year full-time fellowship. Applicants must be within three years of the award of their doctorate and they must be a UK or EEA national, or have completed a doctorate at a UK university, or have a strong prior association with the UK academic community. The scheme is not open to applicants who hold or have held a permanent university post. The primary emphasis is on completion of a significant piece of publishable research. Applicants who wish to apply for this funding through the Oxford Law Faculty must secure the support of a senior member of the Faculty as a mentor/supervisor. While the fellowship funding will allow for independent research, both the funder and the Faculty require the Fellow to have a mentor to discuss project progress and wider academic life in general on a regular basis.
The application has a two-stage application process, round one has an October deadline and then some applicants are invited to submit a round two application in March. Successful applicants would start their fellowship the following September or October.
