£3 million invested in prestigious Philip Leverhulme Prizes

The value of Philip Leverhulme Prizes this year increases from £70,000 to £100,000 following an investment of an additional £900,000 by the Leverhulme Trust Board. This additional funding
brings the total amount available to £3 million a year. The increased value reflects the exceptional achievements and potential of prize-winning researchers.

The Philip Leverhulme Prizes, which recognise the achievements of the most outstanding early career researchers, were established in 2001 to commemorate the contribution to the work of
the Trust by Philip Leverhulme, the third Viscount Leverhulme and grandson of the Trust’s founder.

From 2014, up to 30 prizes a year will be offered in a wider range of subject areas, to provide greater breadth of support across the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities.
The subject areas in which nominations are invited in 2014 are Biological Sciences, History,Law, Mathematics and Statistics, Philosophy and Theology, and Sociology and Social Policy.

Details of the prizes to be offered in 2015 and 2016 are also available.

For further information, see scheme and nomination guidance.
