Leverhulme Centres

Leverhulme’s flagship funding scheme offers up to £10m over 10 years for UK universities to set up a Research Centre for … “outstanding original research aspiring to achieve a step-change in scholarship.” The choice of research topic is open – with the usual exclusion of studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals; and research intended to inform clinical or medical practice. The chosen area should be sufficiently large-scale to support an ambitious but realistic research agenda for 10 years; and Centres may be single-site (one university) or multi-site (hub and spokes) – including international universities, where appropriate.

The Leverhulme Research Centre competition does not run to a fixed schedule. However, historically there has been a call approximately every three years. The previous invitation for applications took place in 2021. We are therefore anticipating a call launching late in 2023, with a deadline in 2024.
