Awards are made through a competitive exercise. Heads of relevant Institutions are invited in the Summer to nominate candidates whom they consider meet the criteria and are able to make an outstanding contribution over and above the normal expectations for their level of appointment.  Heads of Institutions also recommend whether the award should be for a Senior or Junior Fellowship as appropriate.

While Fund Managers are willing to consider ad hoc nominations and appointments throughout the year, the Managers meet annually in the Michaelmas Term to consider nominations and supporting proposals.

The deadline for nominations this year is Monday 9 October 2023


Applications can be made by email to, and must include:

  • a covering letter
  • research proposal (no more than five A4 pages)
  • CV
  • bibliography
  • two external references
  • supporting statement from the Faculty

The research proposal should cover the following:

  • A description of the aims of the applicant’s research and the questions they will set out to answer, as it relates to all aspects of finance, financial institutions, and financial markets, and their relationship with micro-economic behaviour and macro-economic performance, including public policy issues relating to financial markets;
  • An account of the methodology to be followed in carrying out the research; and, a description of the interdisciplinary linkages that will be developed through the project.


Successful candidates will be informed in writing of the outcome of their application, and will normally be expected to take up their Fellowship on the 1 January following their appointment.
