The Stevenson Fund makes available annually three bursaries of up to a value of £7,500 each. These are open to female students from Imperial College who are studying for degrees in Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Life Sciences, Centre for Environmental Policy, Geophysics and Geology to undertake an international research placement of up to a maximum of three months with a leading female scientist in a similar institution.

The approach in 2022 will be to fund in-person placements, delaying and/or changing destinations based on public health guidance relating to the ongoing Coronavirus situation.

Recipients of the Stevenson Fund will be expected to submit a report about their placement and share their experience; they may also be invited to join the selection panel in the following year.
