Fellowships awarded by the Co-operative Research Programme

Information about fellowships funded since 2016 can be found in the links below, including reports from fellows and links to published papers that came out of the fellowships. It may be useful to look at these if you are applying for a CRP fellowship to see what sort of research projects have been funded in the past. To apply for funding, please see the upcoming call for applications.
