RES Junior Fellowship Awards suspended 2017

  • Published Date: 09 December 2016

The Society has competitively offered one-year Junior Fellowships to doctoral candidates at UK universities each year since 1995. However, the scheme will be suspended for 2017. This decision has been taken reluctantly, but in recognition of the pressure on RES administrative resources during the establishment of a new office in London in the first half of 2017. When endorsing this decision, the RES Council agreed that the opportunity should be taken to review the Junior Fellowship Scheme in the light of the substantial financial investment made by the Society in this scheme over time. Heads of UK Economics Departments, among others, will be consulted and any changes in the scheme for 2018 and beyond will be advertised on the RES website once the review is complete.

A decision regarding the scheme for 2018 will be made available online towards the end of 2017.
