About the Fellowship Programme

The main goals of the Programme are to improve and promote good computational practice across all research disciplines and support those who are doing this important work. We encourage our Fellows to be ambassadors of good practices in their own domains, fields, and/or areas of work.

Becoming a Fellow

The SSI’s selection process for inducting new Fellows has proven remarkably adept at identifying emerging leaders over the last decade. Following selection, we award each successful candidate a package of flexible financial support worth £4,000, to spend towards sustaining their activities related to research software over 15 months. 

The Fellowship is an opportunity to join and be part of an engaging, supportive, and inspiring community. We believe that “Once a Fellow, always a Fellow”, and continue to support and engage with our Fellows beyond their inaugural 15-month period. 

The Fellowship Programme will open applications in August 2024.

The Fellowship Programme has been an amazing experience — I’ve met lots of fantastic people and I’ve also developed the confidence to step outside of my academic discipline to interact and work with people across lots of different areas.
