About the Event

The Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships are three-year awards for researchers who have recently finished their PhD and have a proven track record of research. They cover salary and research expenses and aim to enable fellows to undertake a significant piece of publishable work and propel their academic career.

What will I learn?

By the end of this event, you will:

  • understand how to complete the application
  • understand the practicalities of filling in the online form and developing the research expenses budget
  • understand how to orientate your proposal to the funder's requirements and priorities.

Speaker: Charis Wilson, Senior Research Funding Specialist, Edinburgh Research Office
