Application form

Applications for 2021 Soulsby Fellowships will be accepted between 1 November 2020 and midnight (GMT) on 31 January 2021. Whilst the Trustees wish to encourage a diversity of applications related to One Health, awards are primarily aimed at early career researchers or those providing training in One Health.

Please apply online using the form below or download the form using these links:

Applicants should note that, for the purposes of applying for a Soulsby Foundation Fellowship, the board has adopted the following definition of One Health:

“One Health focuses on the interdependence between the health of livestock, humans, wildlife and the environment and the importance of this inter-relationship in framing research questions, policy and practice. While there is no universally accepted definition of One Health, interdisciplinary collaboration and systems-level approaches lie at its core. For the purposes of this funding opportunity, successful applications are likely to be those which propose research projects which integrate knowledge from animal and human health and have the potential to improve our understanding of disease in man and animals. This includes consideration of the socio-economic aspects and environmental impacts of those diseases which are relevant to animal and human health.”

All applications will be assessed against this definition.
