Description
The aim of these awards is to support talented researchers 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. The awards provide support for research assistants and research students led by the award holder.The Trust was established in 1925 under the Will of the First Viscount Leverhulme with the instruction that its resources should be used to support "scholarships for the purposes of research and education." Since that time, the Trust has provided funding for research projects, fellowships, studentships, bursaries and prizes. It operates across all the academic disciplines. Eligibility Eligible institutions are universities in the UK. Eligible applicants will have held a university post for at least two years.
