Social Sciences Engagement Fellowships

Social Sciences Engagement Fellowships 2023-24

This scheme is now closed for the 2023/24 academic year.


Are you a social sciences researcher keen to develop mutually beneficial partnerships with public, policy, or business partners? Would you like some dedicated time to invest in collaborative working with those partners 

The Social Sciences Engagement Fellowships scheme enables social scientists to engage with non-academic stakeholders to build lasting partnerships, develop new engagement skills and experiences, enhance their profile with stakeholders, and grow their research impact. 

The scheme allows social sciences researchers to spend up to six months funded time embedded with or visiting non-academic partners (outward), or for practitioners from those organisations to spend time embedded with a team/department at Oxford (inward).

Funding of up to £20,000 is available to support staff time to enable the exchange of learning, ideas, and experiences with partners to deliver mutually beneficial outcomes, impacts and ongoing partnerships.
