Acknowledging the Trust’s support

The Trust requires that all grant holders acknowledge support received from the Leverhulme Trust in any form of media communication, including media appearances, press releases, book launches and conferences. When acknowledging our support, you should include our logo if possible.

The Trust welcomes the opportunity to comment on press releases or announcements associated with the grant, to ensure publicity requirements and branding guidelines have been met; please send draft releases to our Communications Team at grants@leverhulme.ac.uk

As a general rule, you should acknowledge the Trust’s support in the following:

  • Media and press releases
  • Project websites or blogs
  • Recruitment advertisements where the position is funded by the Trust
  • Papers, books and other publications
  • Exhibitions or conferences
  • Flyers, posters or brochures
  • Tweets regarding any of the above, tag the Trust: @LeverhulmeTrust

In asking for public acknowledgement of the Trust’s support, our intention is to a) foster wider understanding of the distinctive role of our support in the current research funding landscape and b) to ensure that the breadth and quality of the research we fund is publicly recognised.

Wording your acknowledgement

Grant holders can use their own words to acknowledge our support – we do not require a standard formula to be used. In wording your acknowledgement, please:

  • use our full, official name: ‘the Leverhulme Trust’
  • refer to the specific scheme through which your research was funded, if it is possible to do so. For example, ‘…the work was funded by a Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant…’

Those holding a fellowship may refer to themselves as a ‘Leverhulme [Scheme Name] Fellow’. For example, ‘Leverhulme Emeritus Fellow’ or ‘Leverhulme Early Career Fellow’.

Guidance on media releases

  • All media releases about the research we fund should include our logo and a written acknowledgement of our support
  • In acknowledging our support, please make sure that your wording does not imply that the research was commissioned by the Trust, is being conducted by the Trust, or being carried out on the Trust’s behalf
  • If you would like us to provide feedback on your draft media release, please send it to our Communications Team at grants@leverhulme.ac.uk
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to provide quotes concerning specific grants, fellowships or other awards
