The deadline for applications is Wednesday 25 November 2020, 5pm UK time.
Purpose of the scheme
The British Academy / Wolfson Fellowships provide early-career academics with the most valuable commodity – time – by releasing them from some of their administration and teaching duties to pursue their research, along with funding for public engagement and travel. The award duration is three years.
These awards are designed to support early-career researchers who show exceptional talent in both research and public engagement, emphasising and demonstrating the importance of academic research and creative thought at a time of rapid political and societal change.
Applicants should be within seven years of completion of their doctorate; applications from researchers who have had to take time out since the completion of their PhD for maternity / paternity / adoption leave, for caring responsibilities or for periods of illness are also welcome.
Level of award
The grant maximum is £130,000 across three years. Awards can be used flexibly: at least £90,000 for time buy out, and up to £40,000 for research and travel expenses and dissemination of findings.
