The Fellowships are open to ENT Specialty Registrars on numbered otolaryngology training programmes in the UK and Republic of Ireland.  Applicants must have passed the Intercollegiate FRCS by the time the Fellowship commences but may be pre- or post-CCT.  The grant takes the form of an educational stipend of £25,000 which is not liable to income tax under current HMRC regulations: this is intended to cover the first 6 months, and the second 6 months is funded through the host department.

Applicants for TWJ Major Fellowships should note that the Trustees have no objection to Fellows securing modest supplementary grants or awards to help with the expenses of their Fellowship.  However, obtaining a second major Fellowship award from another source which matches or exceeds the TWJ grant would be unacceptable and liable to lead to withdrawal of the TWJ Fellowship.

Instructions for application are on the Applications page of this website.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 3rd January 2023 followed by interviews for the shortlisted candidates at the Royal College of Surgeons of England on Monday 6th March 2023.  Interviews will be held jointly with the Graham Fraser Foundation, and candidates are encouraged to apply for both Foundations’ Fellowships.
