Fellowship Call

Change to ICAT application process for 2022

The ICAT Programme has appointed 39 exceptional trainees over the past 5 years and we look forward to expanding the programme further over the next 5 years. The application process will change slightly for future intakes and this year will see a later application call than in previous years. We anticipate that the next application call (for fellowships starting in July 2022) will open in April 2022 and we will publish full details on the website in advance of the call.

Webinar for applicants

A webinar for potential applicants will be scheduled for each application call.

You can view a recording of a previous webinar for potential applicants (September 2020) here.

Please note that applicants are welcome to contact ICAT at any time for advice about the programme and application process.
