Fox International Graduate/Undergraduate Fellowship Eligibility
- Successful undergraduate applicants will be those about to graduate from Cambridge, and their year at Yale functions as a gap year, often in preparation for further study in the UK or elsewhere.
- Successful graduate applicants are typically at work on doctoral projects at Cambridge which would benefit from exposure to material and scholars at Yale, and these holders are allowed to count their year at Yale as part of their PhD work, with suitable leave to work away from Cambridge having been obtained. However, those graduating from a Masters year are also eligible to apply but would need to demonstrate how the year in Yale will satisfy the selection criteria set out below.
