The Academy are pleased to announce a new initiative, Access Mentoring, which aims to provide additional pre-application support to applicants from groups that are persistently underrepresented within UK engineering. This positive action will contribute to improving diversity in the talent pipeline and widening the diversity of applicants and awardees within the Academy’s research grant schemes.
Access Mentoring will provide the applicant with advice in producing a high-quality application aligned to expectations of the scheme.
Access Mentoring is currently accepting applications for the current rounds of the following schemes:
Access Mentoring deadline*
Research Fellowships (early career)
30 July 2021
Research Chairs and Senior Research Fellowships

*The deadlines are subject to capacity of mentors being reached and may close sooner
