The international exchanges scheme by the Royal Society is aimed at scientists based in the UK. The scheme stimulates collaborations overseas through either a one-off visit or bilateral travel.

The scheme covers all areas of the natural sciences.
The following funding is available:
•up to £3,000 for one-off travel lasting up to three months;
•up to £6,000 for multiple visits to be completed within one year, including a maximum of £1,000 for research expenses;
•up to £12,000 for multiple visits to be completed within two years, including a maximum up £2,000 for research expenses.
Both the UK and partner country project leader must have completed a PhD or have extensive experience at an equivalent level, and hold a permanent or fixed-term contract for the duration of the award at an eligible university or research institute in their country. Retired scientists who are still active in science must submit their application through an eligible UK institute.
