Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships, 2023

The Leverhulme Trust is delighted to offer the Early Career Fellowships for the talented students across the United Kingdom.

The Fellowships are intended to assist those at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, and it is hoped that the appointment would lead to a more permanent position for the individual, either within the same or another institution.

Fellowships are tenable for 3 years on a full-time basis. The Trust will support requests to hold the award part-time over a proportionately longer period for health-related reasons, disability or childcare commitments.

Application Deadline: Applicants must submit all required application materials until 23 February 2023.

Brief Description

  • Study Subject (s): Applications will be considered in all subject areas.
  • Course Level: Fellowships are available to complete a research project.
  • Scholarship Provider: The Leverhulme Trust
  • Scholarship can be taken at the UK



Applicants must not yet have held a full-time permanent academic post in a UK university or comparable UK institution, nor may Fellows hold such a post concurrently with the Early Career Fellowship. The Trust will consider applications from candidates whose permanent post does not include any research.

Those in receipt of a stipendiary Fellowship may not hold this at the same time as an Early Career Fellowship.

How to Apply: To make an application, access the Leverhulme Trust Grants Management System.


Approximately 145 Fellowships are available each year. The Trust will contribute 50% of each Fellow’s total salary costs up to a maximum of £25,000 per year and the balance is to be paid by the host institution. Each Fellow may request annual research expenses of up to £6,000 per year to further his or her research activities.
