Leverhulme Trust

The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships

The Leverhulme 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.

Further information and application forms are accessed through The Leverhulme Trust online application system.

Applicants should contact relevant academic staff in the Institute to act as their mentor and assist them with the preparation of their application.

Applicants should complete the online form, save it as a word document, and submit to a.skinner@ucl.ac.uk (Anne Skinner, Institute Manager) by 12 noon on Monday 7 January 2019

The department will submit the three best applications received to the next stage of the competition.
