Lindemann Trust Fellowships

The English-Speaking Union awards up to three Lindemann Trust Fellowships per year to graduates of exceptional promise in pure and applied physical sciences to carry out research at a host institution in the USA.

Fellowships last for one year and provide an opportunity for postdoctoral scientists to pursue research in the USA without financial difficulty, and without being obliged to take up paid employment.

The Lindemann Trust supports research in the fields of:

  • Astronomy
  • Biophysics
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Geology
  • Geophysics
  • Mathematics
  • Physics.

To apply for a fellowship, applicants will need to complete an application form, provide two references and a letter of endorsement from their chosen institution in the USA. The application form and more details about the application process can be found on the English-Speaking Union website.
