Prospective applicants to major fellowships and postdoctoral awards should engage an academic sponsor before getting in touch with the Faculty’s research office via email@example.com.
Fellowships and larger grant-holders are substantively more engaged with the Faculty administration throughout both the process of application and the period of their grant award. Fellowships will typically be administered by the Faculty. They will also usually come with a college affiliation, which might be arranged by your sponsor, the Faculty administration, or through the applicant applying directly to the college (such as for a non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship).
This category of visitor does not need to complete an Academic Visitor’s Application Form alongside their external application.
Prospective applicants will first need a sponsor who is a current postholder* of the History Faculty. An application will then comprise the following:
- Statement/proposal of intended activities, including rationale for association with the Faculty
- Academic Visitor’s Application Form [download here]
- An up-to-date CV
Once the application has been assembled, please ask your sponsor to send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with their endorsement. Completed applications will then be forwarded on to the Chair of the Faculty Board and/or the Head of Administration of Finance for consideration.
Once approved, visitors are welcome to request letters of support for their funding body.
