“...scholarships for research and education...”
The Leverhulme Trust was established in 1925 under the Will of the First Viscount Leverhulme with the instruction that its resources should be used to support “scholarships for the purposes of research and education.”
Since that time, the Trust has provided funding for research projects, fellowships, studentships, bursaries and prizes; it operates across all the academic disciplines, the ambition being to support talented individuals as they realise their personal vision in research and professional training.
With annual funding of some £50 million, the Trust is amongst the largest all-subject providers of research funding in the UK. Dickens Journals Online gratefully acknowledges the support of the Leverhulme Trust, 2009-2011 (Research Fellowship) and 2011-12 (Research Project Grant).
