Research Leadership Awards - Leverhulme Trust

Closing date: 10 May 2019


The aim is to support talented scholars who have successfully launched a university career but who need to build a research team of sufficient scale to tackle a distinctive research problem. This creates an opportunity for the development and demonstration of research leadership; that is, for the direction of a modest team or group, whose research may significantly change the established landscape in a particular field of inquiry. Each institution is limited to one bid only.


£800,000 to £1 million, for staff salaries and associated costs.


Each grant runs over a period of 4 to 5 years.
