Aim and Benefits of British Academy Global Innovation Fellowships
The objective of the Global Innovation Fellowships is to provide opportunities to UK-based early- and mid-career researchers from across the humanities and social sciences to develop their skills, networks and careers in the creative and cultural, public, private and policy sectors to address challenges that require innovative approaches and solutions. Through the Global Innovation Fellowships, researchers in the SHAPE community will be supported to create new and deeper links beyond academia, so enabling knowledge mobilisation and translation, as well as individual skills development.
Level of award: The Academy is offering up to three one-year fellowships hosted in Carnegie’s offices in the USA (Washington DC or California). These are offered as awards for up to £150,000 for 12 months in duration (with Full Economic Costing at 80%).
Requirements for British Academy Global Innovation Fellowships Qualification
- There are not any preconceived ideas about the disciplinary background of the award holder, but the applicant will need to demonstrate a solid understanding of the relevant issues, including the applicable policy landscape and the systemic challenges that it faces.

Interview date, Process and Venue for British Academy Global Innovation Fellowships
