The TWJ Foundation offers annual overseas major clinical fellowships in otology, neurotology and lateral skull-base surgery. These are available to ENT specialty registrars in the UK and Republic of Ireland, who must have passed the Intercollegiate FRCS examination by the time the fellowship commences but may be pre- or post-CCT. 

The fellowships are tenable for 12 months and are currently offered in Auckland (New Zealand), Halifax (Canada), Toronto (Canada), Vancouver (Canada) and Cambridge (UK). Because some host departments offer a TWJ fellowship every two years and some, every three years, the number available varies from year to year: 2024 will be a bumper year with three fellowships on offer. 

The foundation also offers annual short fellowship grants for consultants with a special interest in otology to visit the Clinique Jean Causse in Béziers, France, the Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and the European Institute for ORL, Sint-Augustinus in Antwerp, Belgium. Applications are also considered from final-year specialty registrars in the UK and Republic of Ireland who have passed the Intercollegiate FRCS and have a special interest in otology. 

In addition, the foundation sometimes makes available thesis and other small grants. It also funds the Pat Jobson Prize, which is awarded annually by the British Association of Audiovestibular Physicians.
