NESTA, the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, is offering a fellowship designed to give exceptional individuals the time and support they need to develop their creative potential. Dream Time is a great opportunity for high achievers with a proven track record (at least 10 years experience is your designated field) to take a year away from an established career to explore new ideas and see what might emerge from a period of intense professional development.
This year NESTA will make up to sixteen awards across science, technology and the arts, including those that cross disciplines – the scheme is open to all those working within these sectors. The award can span up to one year, can be run alongside other professional commitments, and must be started by September 2005. The award maximum is £40,000.
The deadline for applications is 8 October 2004. For further details visit: www.nesta.org.uk/dreamtime
