The Leverhulme Trust - Research Project Grants

(4 March 2005)

The Leverhulme Trust invites proposals for its research grants, primarily to enable established scholars to employ research assistants for a specific and discrete research project. There are two levels of grant: up to £250,000 for up to three years; and between £250,000 and £500,000 for up to five years.

Universities and other institutions of higher and further education in the UK, registered charities in the UK and institutions or organisations in less developed countries where the provision for research funding is seriously limited are eligible to apply. The trust supports research in all fields except social policy and welfare, medicine and school education.

Deadline: outline proposals, taking a minimum of five weeks to process, can be submitted at any time; full proposals 21 March 2005
