BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants

Deadline: 8 November 2023

The British Academy (BA)/Leverhulme Small Research Grants stand as one of the Academy’s highest profile programmes with awards made to academics working at around 100 Institutions around the UK. These awards, up to £10,000 in value and tenable for up to 24 months, are provided to cover the cost of the expenses arising from a defined research project.


Awards are open to postdoctoral scholars (or equivalent) who are ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom. Applications require the approval of the applicant's employing institution, but are not limited to those of any particular status (e.g. Lecturer, Professor etc). Application may be made by independent scholars (who should choose 'independent scholar' as the relevant choice from the list of organisations in Flexi-Grant). Co-applicants may be from anywhere in the world, but the Principal Applicant must be ordinarily resident in the UK.

Further information on the grants can be found on the BA website

There is also an interesting blog post which talks about the initial results of the first year of the Partial Randomisation Trial.
