Newton International Fellowships from Royal Society UK

9 March, 2020

The Royal Society UK approaches Palestine Academy after Sir Vicky’s visit to Palestine, urging junior Palestinian researchers to apply for Newton International Fellowships.

This is the first step towards some thoughts on possible next steps, as they discussed during February meeting in Ramallah.  To help bring early career researchers together in a way which would help promote new collaborations between UK based and Palestinian scientists.

These fellowships are for non-UK scientists who are at an early stage of their research career and wish to conduct research in the UK.
