Application Deadline: July 31st 2015
Seligman Fellowships are for recent food engineering graduates and post-graduates who are non-UK residents currently working in industry or academia and would be able to come to the UK to dedicate a continuous period of up to six months on project based studies in food engineering to develop their skills and acquire relevant state-of-the-art knowledge. Candidates must demonstrate that they are particularly involved in food engineering in their home countries.
The Seligman APV Trust was endowed by APV (now part of SPX) in honour of its founder, SCI Member Dr Richard Seligman (1878-1972). This is one of the charitable funds of SCI (Registered Charity No 206883). The Seligman APV Trust grants Fellowships through a Selection Panel that includes food engineering and science experts, and members of the Seligman family.
- The fellowship invites applications from recent graduates, and post-graduates aged 25 to 35, whose careers are focused in food engineering and who are non-UK residents.
- Applicants must be working in industry or academia and be able to spend a period of up to six continuous months in the UK on project based studies in food engineering to develop their skills and acquire relevant state-of-the-art knowledge.
- This is an excellent opportunity to study in one of the UK’s leading centres of food technology/engineering teaching or industrial research for up to six months with a grant of up to £11,000.
The Seligman Fellowship Covers:
Funds of up to GB £11,000 are allocated to Fellows, which cover

Selected candidates must be aware of this fact and, if intending to bring their partners or families to the UK, must be capable of funding their stay through their own savings or income secured in their home country. UK immigration law prohibits student visitors and general visitors or tourists from working in the UK.
