2019 Philip Leverhulme Prizes

Philip Leverhulme Prizes recognise the achievement of outstanding researchers whose work has already won international recognition and whose future is exceptionally promising. In 2019 there are thirty prizes available across six broad subject areas. 

Prizes offer £100,00 over two or three years and may be used for any purpose that advances the prize winner’s research, with the following exceptions: salary costs for the prize winner, capital costs, and institutional overheads. 

In 2019, we invite applications from researchers working in the following subject areas:
Archaeology, Chemistry, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Languages and Literatures. 

The subject areas are intentionally broad and we encourage applicants to consider which best reflects their area of research, irrespective of their departmental affiliation.

To be eligible, applicants must hold a post in a UK university or research institution and must have received their highest degree no earlier than 20 May 2009 (exceptions will be considered where applicants have had a distinct career break).

Applicants must be nominated by their head of department (or equivalent). Applicants may be nominated in one subject area only.

Closing date: 4pm on 20 May 2019

Guidance and nominations: full scheme details and the online nomination form are available on the Leverhulme Trust website: https://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/philip-leverhulme-prizes

The prizes commemorate the contribution to the work of the Trust made by Philip Leverhulme, the Third Viscount Leverhulme and grandson of William Hesketh Lever, the founder of the Trust.
