Enterprise Fellowships

Funding area: Commercialisation Support

RSE Enterprise Fellowships enable promising science and technology researchers to develop into successful entrepreneurs.

Awardees get to focus solely on refining their business ideas, whilst receiving one year’s salary, expert training in entrepreneurship and access to mentorship from business Fellows of the RSE and other successful entrepreneurs in the business community.

Since 1997, over 200 individuals have benefited from this highly competitive and prestigious programme which has been supported by Scottish Enterprise, BBSRC, STFC, NERC and QuantIC.

View the scheme brochure for more details.

The next deadline for Enterprise Fellowships is Wednesday 31 October 2018.  Details on how to apply can be accessed via the Application Forms and Guidance section below.

Please note that NERC-funded Enterprise Fellowships are not available for this round but a new BP Fund has been launched to target those with a proposal that falls within the subject matters of Energy Innovation and Advancing the Low Carbon Energy Transition, topics form a core part of BP’s strategy.
