Three Fellowships were open to all QUB academic staff who have already been awarded sabbatical leave by their School for a semester during 2023-24. As part of the award, the academics each receive £4,000 from the Institute to support their research activities, they will present their research in a Mitchell Institute Lecture or Workshop and will be provided with office space at the Institute, during their tenure.
We look forward to providing updates on their activity in the next academic year.
