The Royal Society of Edinburgh’s Enterprise Fellowships require a sense of purpose

Top tips

  • Most Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise Fellowships are open to applications that can show potential UK-wide impact and do not require a special link with Scotland 
  • Always keep the business potential of your idea, not the scientific impact, at the front of your mind when applying 
  • Now is the time to ask for help from your mentors and any business contacts you may have
  • Clarity is important at all points in the application
