Bogue Fellowships

Bogue Fellowship supports postgraduate research students and post-doctoral to carry out research in laboratories in the USA in order ‘to enrich the research experience and help develop the scientific career of the Fellow’.

The duration of the Fellowship needs to be well justified in relation to the time needed to do the proposed work. Recent awards have ranged from a few weeks to up to six months. Requests for up to 12 months will be considered, but only if very well justified. Applications will also be considered for attendance at advanced, intensive, high quality laboratory-based courses at Cold Spring Harbor, Woods Hole and similar centres.

Who is eligible?

Fellowships are restricted to applicants whose research is in the area of Physiology and Cognate Sciences (i.e. most areas of the life and basic biomedical sciences). Those working in Clinical Medicine and Psychiatry are specifically excluded. Students or postdoctoral researchers carrying out basic research in clinical departments are, however, eligible.

The previous award of a Bogue Fellowship or an unsuccessful application does not debar an individual from applying for a further award providing they still meet the eligibility criteria.

The deadline for the first application round is 3pm on 8 April 2024. The deadline for the second application round is 3pm on 24 October 2024. Decisions will be made 4-8 weeks after the deadline closes.
