Guidance notes for the BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowships 2020-21. Please read these scheme notes carefully. Any incorrectly submitted application will be ineligible for award.

Aim of the scheme

The purpose of these Fellowships, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and other non-government sources, and administered by the British Academy, is to provide a period of research leave for one year for established scholars. During this time academics will be able to concentrate on bringing a major piece of research towards completion while their normal teaching and administrative duties are covered by a full-time replacement. The Fellowships are tenable for one year and must be taken up in the autumn of 2021. The earliest start date is 1 September 2021 and the latest start date is 1 January 2022.
