The purpose of these awards is to give an opportunity for extended research leave to a small number of the most outstanding established scholars to enable them to concentrate on a significant research programme, while freed from normal teaching and administrative commitments.

Emphasis is also placed by the Academy and the Wolfson Foundation on the importance of award-holders communicating their plans and results to a broad audience.

The 2016-17 application cycle for the Wolfson Professorships has ended. We warmly congratulate the recipients and look forward to the progression of their cutting-edge work.
