New Beltane Fellowship call

Today, we’ve issued a new call for Beltane Fellows with a deadline of 4th February 2013.

As with previous Beltane Fellowship calls, this one provides funding to enable academic or research staff to spend the equivalent of one day a week for up to six months working on public engagement activity. For this call, we have two themes:

  • Inclusive, Innovative and Secure Societies
  • Wellbeing in an Ageing Population

All applications must address at least one of these themes.

To be eligible to apply, you must be a member of academic or research staff (grade 6 or above; contract outliving the proposed Fellowship end-date) at one of the four Edinburgh universities who support Beltane (The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, Queen Margaret University or Heriot-Watt University). Previous public engagement experience is not essential.

If you are curious about the scheme, we would encourage you to come and meet existing Beltane Fellows at lunchtime on Tuesday 22nd January 2013.
