Our Visiting Fellow Scholarships enable Members to undertake short term (less than one year) visits overseas to gain experience in a different field or to learn new research. Funding is to be used explicitly for costs associated with your research; subsistence, travel, accommodation and similar are not covered under the grant.

You are responsible for complying with the highest standards of integrity in your research.  If your research supported by our grant becomes subject to an investigation of scientific misconduct, you must inform us immediately and we may then suspend funding.  If academic fraud is found in the publication of your research supported by us, you must ensure that appropriate errata or restrictions are published.

You are fully responsible for the management, conduct and control of all research work funded by the grant. We are not liable, except for death or personal injury arising from our negligence or from our fraud, to any third party for any matter arising in connection with the work funded by our grant and the publication of the results thereof.

We encourage the promotion of our organisation, but you must obtain our explicit written consent each time you wish to make any statements about, or references in any documents or other medium to, our grant support or our organisation or use our name and logo.

You will supply a report to us after the completion of your fellowship, detailing what benefits you gained from the fellowship and how the funding was spent. Your photo and a slightly edited copy of your report may be published in our communications materials, including our website and social media platforms. We will contact you for approval if major edits are required. You may request that we do not publish confidential information, or withdraw your consent at any time.

You may be asked to present on your fellowship at BSH meetings, such as the Annual Scientific Meeting, in order to promote national research and the BSH grant programme.
