The BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowships are intended to enable established scholars, needing relief from teaching and administration, to have the time to bring to completion a significant piece of research, through sustained period of leave for one year.
Particular focus is on individuals who have laboured for a long period of time with little or no prospect of dedicating time towards their project or to produce what, in many cases, hopes to be a career defining work.
The Academy takes no account of an applicant's age or current status (e.g. Professor, Lecturer) in determining eligibility for these awards. Rather, in all cases, award-holders are expected to be able to disseminate the results of their research not only through publications, but also through feeding into their future academic career after the end of the awards. Any field of study in the humanities and social sciences is suitable for support. Must be employed in a UK institution.
