Event description

Description

The Leverhulme Trust are one of the largest grant-making foundations in the UK, distributing approximately £80m a year in research grants and fellowships across the arts, humanities and social sciences. They pride themselves on playing a distinctive role to the research councils and don’t set strategic priorities. So what are they looking for? What do they mean when they say they take a “non-utilitarian and academy-focused approach to funding”? How can you engage their interest and how do their panels make decisions on what to fund? This session will bring together insights from a grant winner and a panel member to discuss Leverhulme’s distinctive approach.

Professor John Bew (Professor of History & Foreign Policy, Department of War Studies) won the Philip Leverhulme Prize for Politics and International Studies in 2015, and has also won a Leverhulme Research Fellowship. His research team have won Leverhulme’s Early Career Fellowships and this year he led King’s submission to the Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships competition.

Professor Davina Cooper (incoming Research Professor at the Dickson Poon School of Law, currently Professor of Law & Political Theory at the University of Kent) is a member of the Leverhulme’s Research Awards Advisory Committee, covering Early Career Fellowships, the 24 month Research Fellowship, a number of international and emeritus fellowships, and study abroad studentships. She has previously sat on the ESRC’s grants board and has won a Leverhulme Research Fellowship and a Leverhulme Visiting Chair, in addition to large grants from the AHRC and ESRC.

All are welcome. In the event of oversubscription, priority will be given to those who are currently in the process of developing a Leverhulme Trust application. For any queries contact Dr David Newsome (Research Development Manager [SSPP & Law]; david.newsome@kcl.ac.uk).
