Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has awarded 66 Travel Fellowships, to researchers from all countries eligible to apply. As part of this fourth round of funding, applications are sought from clinical or non-clinical researchers whose research falls within the broad scope of medical or bioscience research. As part of the fourth round of funding, two additional Travel Fellowship Awards are available to applicants working within the field of surgical research.

Egypt, IsraelJordanLebanon, the Palestinian Territory and the UK.

Fellowships are available to early or mid-career medical or bioscience researchers from Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinian Territory, to spend time in laboratories or hospitals in the UK. Fellowships are also available to researchers based in the UK, to visit laboratories or hospitals in the Middle East (within those countries listed above). The scheme offers up to £3,500 per award to cover travel expenses and provide a subsistence allowance for a period of up to four weeks.

Applications should be made through the candidate's Heads of Department who will act as sponsor for the applicant.
