The Trust is happy to announce the opening of the October 2021 round of Visiting Professorships, after suspending the May 2021 round due to COVID-19. The Grants Management System is now open to applications for a deadline of Thursday 7 October 2021 at 4pm. Awards resulting from this round will begin no sooner than 1 May 2022, by which time we hope international travel to have returned to near-normal conditions. However, in the event that there are ongoing outbreaks leading to restrictions, the Trust would not support postponements beyond the usual window, i.e. visits must begin by the end of June 2023, or applicants must re-apply.
