The Leverhulme Trust is very pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Philip Leverhulme Prizes. Philip Leverhulme Prizes have been awarded annually since 2001 in commemoration of the contribution to the work of the Trust made by Philip Leverhulme, the Third Viscount Leverhulme and grandson of William Hesketh Lever, the founder of the Trust. The prizes recognise the achievement of outstanding researchers whose work has already attracted international recognition and whose future career is exceptionally promising.
In 2015 the Trust offered 5 prizes in each of the following subject areas Classics; Earth Sciences; Physics; Politics and International Relations; Psychology; and Visual and Performing Arts. Each of the 30 Prize Winners receives £100,000 which can be used over two or three years to advance their research.
In 2016 the Trust will invite nominations for prizes in Archaeology; Chemistry; Economics; Engineering; Geography; and Languages and Literatures. Further information regarding the nomination process is available here and our online grant application system will open to nominations for the 2016 subject areas from 1 January.
