FLF Round 8 Inclusive Selection Statement Survey

Closed 18 Jul 2023

Opened 19 May 2023


Academic host organisations who are submitting applications to Round 8 of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Future Leaders Fellowships (FLF) scheme must complete this survey prior to the closing date for full applications of 4:00pm UK time on 4 July 2023. Full proposals submitted by host organisations that have not completed this survey will be office rejected.

Academic host organisations submitting applications to Round 8 of the UKRI FLF scheme are asked to consider the diversity of their selected applicants and to use an inclusive approach when selecting who they choose to put forward for this funding opportunity. UKRI expects that host organisations consider diversity broadly to include backgrounds, career paths, research areas, thought and approach as well as protected characteristics.

All academic host organisations submitting applications to this funding opportunity are asked to provide a statement describing the inclusive process they have used to select their chosen candidates prior to the submission of any full proposals to UKRI. The statement should describe the process used to identify potential candidates. It should not include personal details of potential candidates nor any details that may enable them to be identified. The information provided will not form part of the assessment process but will contribute to an external review being undertaken by UKRI which aims to identify and share good practice relating to applicant support and inclusive selection processes.

The personal information that you provide on this form will only be used for the specific aims of this survey as stated.
