About the Professional Practice Fellowships
Five fellowships of up to £20,000 (80% FEC) are available under this scheme. The fellowships are designed to enable library colleagues to set research agendas, be active participants and leaders of multidisciplinary research, and to provide intellectual leadership in their own disciplines and beyond.
