This programme provides mid-career to senior scholars - active in any discipline within the social sciences and the humanities and based in any country overseas - with the opportunity to relocate for a period of four years to the UK and make a contribution to UK research and higher education.
Each four-year appointment is intended to be a complete project in itself and is expected to involve a specific research focus, although the British Academy does not have a preferred model for the balance of time to be spent between research and teaching (which may vary over the course of the award and will depend on the UK host institution’s needs).
The aim of the programme is to enable world-class internationally-recognised established scholars to further their individual research goals while strengthening the UK research base and advancing the research goals and strategies of their UK host institutions.
The British Academy will provide funding of up to £187,500 per annum, and up to £750,000 over four years. The host UK institution will be expected to contribute £37,500 per annum (20% of the Academy’s annual contribution) to help support the applicant’s salary in each of the four years.
Full guidelines are available on the British Academy website.
