Visiting Fellows

CFS operates a Visiting Fellows scheme to allow academics, researchers and practitioners to spend a period of time conducting research with CFS. Prospective applicants should note that CFS only accepts applicants who can:

  • Provide a clear timetable for the proposed duration and timing of their visit, together with achievable research objectives
  • Make a compelling case to demonstrate that their presence and work will compliment our research environment and enhance our research profile

Fellows may start at any time during the year, subject to agreement with CFS. The length of a visit would normally be between one and three months, although requests for longer visits may be considered. Applications are considered from those who have or expect to have adequate financial support for the proposed visit. CFS does not usually provide fellows with a research allowance. Prior to applying, foreign fellows should familiarise themselves with the process of obtaining a local research licence (See the Guide for Visiting Scholars).
