There are some fellowships and bursaries specifically aimed at encouraging those who have had career breaks to return to work:
- Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships - aimed at scientists and engineers at an early stage in their academic careers who require a flexible working pattern due to personal circumstances.
- Daphne Jackson Fellowships - designed to help scientists, engineers and technologists back into a career after a break, normally undertaken on a part-time basis.
Congratulations to our University of Manchester scientists who have received these Fellowships

- Wellcome Trust Career Re-entry Fellowships - fellowships in biomedical science for post-doctoral researchers (with experience) who have had a continuous career break of at least two years.
- L’Oreal UK and Ireland For Women In Science Fellowships - provide flexible support for women post-doctoral scientists or engineers.
