The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 annually awards Industrial Fellowships worth up to £100,000 to the UK’s most talented young researchers. Set up by Prince Albert to organise the Great Exhibition of 1851 and extended in perpetuity to invest the profits in UK innovation, the Commission has been supporting promising research ever since.
Industrial Fellowships are awarded to graduates with the potential to make an outstanding contribution to industry, for research supported by a company, leading to a patent, product or process improvement and a postgraduate award. The Fellowships encourage profitable innovation and creativity in the British industry - to the mutual benefit of the Fellow and his or her sponsoring company.
Fellows receive significant funding towards their fees and salary, enabling employers to offer exciting personal development opportunities for their brightest employees
Applicants can pursue a PhD whilst working, allowing companies to conduct innovative research that furthers their business objectives, and accelerates the creation of IP.
Fellows and their sponsoring companies will work closely with the PhD institution, developing a mutually beneficial relationship, undertaking research that delivers tangible impact to industry.
Deadline for applications is 11 February 2021. Interviews will be held in March 2021 with Fellowships commencing in October 2021.
