The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 expects world-changing ambition from its fellows
- Don’t be put off by the fellowship’s prestige—this is a relatively straightforward application
- Independent research is a must and you should highlight the originality
- The project must be realistic but ambitious
- Consider the option to undertake the fellowship on a self-employed basis
The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, an institution initially set up with profits generated from the Great Exhibition, awards around eight research fellowships each year.
