Postdocs Masterclass: Writing Fellowship Grants with Impact

Thu 13 May 2021


In the increasingly competitive field of fellowship funding, applications need to stand out immediately to capture reviewers’ interest and to maximise the chance of being funded.

This accelerated session, aimed at early career researchers, highlights key considerations in preparing a strong fellowship application. 

The session explores:

  •  desirability, feasibility and viability – planning your project
  •  what’s important to the funder
  • how applications are assessed
  • writing style - how to get noticed
  • project, person, place, partners – elements of successful fellowships
  • how to plan for impact – ‘so what’ , ‘now what’

The session will have two parts:

  • A talk that will last for 45-60 mins
  • An opportunity for you to ask your own questions a 30 min Q&A.  

The Speaker: Richard Henning Brodersen, Research Development Manager, Research Operations Office Richard leads the pre-award team for the School of Technology at Cambridge University. He has over 10 years’ experience supporting and co-writing research funding applications including fellowships, research grants and industry collaborations for a wide range of funders across the arts, humanities and sciences. Prior to working in higher education Richard had a successful career in financial consultancy and in the further education sector.
