The Leverhulme Trust’s highly valued Research Fellowships scheme returns with minor tweaks

Top tips

  • The fellowships are open to researchers in all disciplines outside medical or clinical research, and interdisciplinary bids are welcome.
  • Do not submit very close to the deadline, because your institution needs time to approve your application.
  • Think carefully about who to list as a referee; the committee pays close attention to this.
  • Check your costs are all eligible.

The Leverhulme Trust’s Research Fellowships scheme is a mainstay of the UK funding landscape.
