American-British-Canadian (ABC) Travelling Fellowship - Closed

ABC Travelling Fellowships

At present we are in discussions with the American and Canadian Associations about the arrangements for these fellowships, which have been significantly disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The cohort due to travel in 2020 have not yet been able to do so, and we are exploring with our international partners when this might be possible and in what format as well as actively looking at when next we might send a new cohort. As yet, this is still uncertain. We will update this page with any further information as it becomes available.
