My winning proposal: Jacobs Foundation is a flexible friend

The education and learning funder gives its fellows space to stretch out with their research

Top tips:

  • Read up on and engage with the aims of the foundation and its strategy as a funder.
  • Fellows should be able to communicate their ideas, methods and approaches across disciplinary boundaries.
  • Emphasise the different ways you can communicate your research to different stakeholders in the foundation—including non-academic fellows.
  • The foundation allows you to adapt your research project should it be appropriate once the fellowship starts.

The Jacobs Foundation’s Research Fellowships support researchers working on child and youth development from any disciplinary perspective.
