Home Events Applying for an NIHR Fellowship - Information Event

There are many types of NIHR Fellowship award on offer, so how do you know which one is the best for you? When and how do you apply? What makes a good application? If you want to know more about NIHR Fellowships - and other NIHR training and career development awards - then this event is for you.

This event will explain about the various NIHR Fellowship awards available and highlight what makes a strong application. This will help you to focus your efforts and ideas appropriately. Competition for these awards is fierce and the event aims to help participants understand how to improve their chances of success. You can also pre-book an individual advice session to discuss any aspect of your application.
