Applications now open: ARC Research and Implementation Fellowships

Applications for the 2022 cohort ARC EoE Fellowships are now open.

Find out more and apply here.


The ARC Fellowship is aimed at clinicians, health & social care practitioners, voluntary sector staff and NHS managers across the East of England. It is for those who would like to work at the interface of research and practice; develop an understanding of the research environment; and develop skills in research methodology, service redesign, change management and implementing evidence-based improvements into practice.

ARC Research and Implementation Fellowships

The ARC Fellowship has been running since 2010. Since then over 100 fellowships have been awarded. All of our fellows have come from a wide range of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds — Consultant Psychiatrists, NHS managers, Clinical Psychologists, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologists, General Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Dieticians and Pharmacists, and they hail from all across the East of England.

Our ARC Fellowship 2022 cohort will begin their fellowship on 1 April 2022 for one year until the end of March 2023. Applications will open on 18 October 2021 with a closing date of 30 November 2021.   Applicants will be able to apply for either the research fellowship or the implementation fellowship. 

The 2022 ARC Fellowship will deviate from its previous format in one important way; where previously fellows were funded by the ARC for one day a week for a year according to their pay grade, from 2022 the maximum funding that the ARC can offer is £12,500 per fellow per year. Thus any applicant interested in applying for a Fellowship must ensure that any funding gap to backfill their one day a week research time, will be covered by their employing organisation. For this the applicant must provide a letter from their organisation confirming this arrangement. 

Applicants can apply for either the ARC Research Fellowship or the Implementation Fellowship.
