Diversity can cover a range of topics such as, but not exclusively:
The individual or team must demonstrate commitment to a particular project and clearly indicate how the activities supported by the Travelling Fellowship will enhance the capacity to engage in conceptually grounded, methodologically rigorous, and programmatic research efforts in the topic area of diversity. Applications where the Fellowship will be used to enable visiting an institution or research group in furtherance of the individual’s own professional and personal development and collaborative opportunities or to bring a scholar to the team in furtherance of the group’s and research project’s development are particularly welcome.
Key datesThe closing date for bids is 31st August 2017. We expect to receive one electronic version of the application by noon on the closing date. Applicants will be informed as to the outcome of their application by 31st October 2017. The fellowship must be used in 2018.

The remaining applications will be reviewed by a small Panel of members selected on the basis of their expertise.
