Guidance for fellowship applicants - MRC

MRC fellowships are personal awards for talented researchers to support key transition points in their careers. Many of today’s leading biomedical and health researchers look back on their MRC fellowship as a significant stepping stone in developing their career.

Information on the different types of fellowships available can be found in MRC fellowships.

This guidance covers areas that are specific to fellowships but, where specifically indicated, please refer to the MRC guidance for applicants which covers areas applicable to both research and fellowship grants.

Watch How to win funds and influence panels, our YouTube video on generating ideas for your research, selecting the right funder, and application process tips.

A PDF download of the guidance for fellowship applicants is also available.
