Visiting Research Fellows & Visiting Scholars

Visiting Research Fellows

The VRF Scheme

The scheme is intended to attract eminent researchers to Oxford and Merton College. The scheme offers free accommodation and meals. There are normally two Visiting Research Fellows resident in any term. Fellowships can be held for one to three terms. Every application has to be sponsored by a Fellow of the College and applications are considered in a gathered field at the end of September each year.

Applications are now open for the next cohort of Visiting Research Fellows for the 2023-24 academic year— details on how to apply are contained in the further particulars.
