British Academy / Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships

BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowships

Scheme currently closed. Will open in October 2019 with a deadline in November 2019.


The purpose of these awards, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, and administered by the British Academy, is to provide a period of research leave for one year for established scholars during which they will be able to concentrate on bringing a major piece of research towards completion while their normal teaching and administrative duties are covered by a full-time replacement.


The Academy takes no account of an  applicant's age or current status (e.g. Professor, Lecturer) in determining  eligibility for these awards. Rather, in all cases, award-holders are expected  to be able to disseminate the results of their research not only through  publications, but also through feeding into their future academic career after the  end of the awards. Any field of study in the humanities and social sciences is  suitable for support.


The only permitted cost that can be applied for is the directly incurred salary (including NI and superannuation) of the replacement lecturer.

If you wish to submit an application please inform the following contacts:

The Faculty and/or , Director of Research (Projects and Impact). 

Further details of the scheme are available on the British Academy’s website. The scheme notes are available here.
