Visiting Fellowship Scheme

MAPS Visiting Fellowship Scheme

Following a successful first two years, we are pleased to continue the MAPS Visiting Fellowship Scheme for this academic year. This year the MAPS faculty has offered several Visiting Fellowships to those who intend to engage, study and research in UCL, specifically related to the Departments in the MAPS Faculty. Our Visiting Fellowship scheme aims to enrich our research culture, develop and promote links with other universities and scholars and allow those within MAPS to learn and work with scholars outside UCL. The Fellowship will support the living and travel expenses with a supplement of up to £3,000.
The deadline for applications for 2023/2024 has passed and the successful applicants to the scheme have been announced below.
