Scholars at Risk programme to reopen

September 13th, 2022

The university will reopen the Scholars at Risk programme for new applicants from Tuesday 13 September.

The programme will be open to researchers and PhD students who will be fully funded to come to Nottingham.

Funding covers costs such as accommodation, stipend, consumables, travel to the UK and welcome packs – as well as pastoral and mental health support to all scholars.

The university has been able to support five researchers and one PhD student through the Scholars at Risk programme which was first initiated earlier this year as a response to the war in Ukraine.

Four scholars have already arrived in Nottingham and are settling into their new routines on campus.

We will welcome the remaining scholars in the coming weeks and look forward to giving colleagues a more detailed update on their progress once they have settled in fully.

The Homes for Ukraine scheme has been a key element to enabling us to welcome scholars to Nottingham, so please be aware that should you wish to nominate someone for funding you must be prepared to act as their sponsor under this scheme.

The university will provide accommodation for scholars and full support to sponsors going through the process.

If you would like to nominate a researcher or PhD student for the Scholars at Risk programme please read our information page on the Global Engagement Hub and complete a nomination form.

If you have any questions please contact the Global Engagement team and they will be happy to help.
