Strathclyde Inspire
RSE Enterprise Fellowship

If you’ve graduated and have an innovative science or tech-based business idea that you need help to accelerate, a Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) Enterprise Fellowship could help you to develop into a world-class entrepreneur.

An RSE Enterprise Fellowship provides successful recipients with:

  • A one-year salary
  • Tailored, cutting-edge business training
  • Mentoring from RSE’s network of partners in the business community
  • Up to £10,000 business support funding
  • Membership of the RSE Entrepreneurs’ Club, with access to networking events

RSE Enterprise Fellowships are awarded twice a year and are extremely competitive.

We receive a large number of hosting requests each year and want to ensure we are supporting applications that align with the University’s strategic goals and objectives. As such, we will only support applications where the applicant has an existing link with Strathclyde.

The next deadline for RSE Enterprise Fellowships is Wednesday 28th April 2021, however, Strathclyde Inspire must receive your application (in Word format) by 12 noon on Wednesday 21st April 2021 to allow for internal sign off processes. The final application to the RSE is submitted via an online portal – therefore we have ensured that you receive sufficient time to transfer your University approved application to the RSE’s portal.

Strathclyde Inspire is only able to support a limited number of applications per funding round.
