The aim of the British Academy in making these awards is to offer opportunities for outstanding early-career researchers to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment which will develop their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent lecturing posts by the end of the Fellowship. Awards are offered on a Full Economic Costing basis, There is no fixed amount awarded for the Fellowships and the value of the award will vary depending on the host institution, and Awards support the salary of the Postdoctoral Fellow to work full-time on the Fellowship, small-scale research expenses (up to a maximum of £6,000), costs towards the time of a mentor (equivalent to one hour per month for the 36 months of the Fellowship) and the host institution’s estates and indirect costs.

The British Academy is the UK’s national body for the humanities and social sciences – the study of peoples, cultures, and societies, past, present and future.

The Scholarships are one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. The aim of the program is to create a global network of future leaders committed to improving the lives of others.

  • To be eligible, the applicants must meet all the following  criteria:
  • Applicants must be supported by the UK host institution in which they wish to hold the Fellowship
  • Applicants must be within three years of the award of a doctorate (this means being awarded via a viva voce examination between 1 April 2017 and 1st April 2020).
  • Applicants in the 2019-20 competition awarded a PhD before 1 April 2017 can apply given extenuating circumstances, such as through illness or parental/caregiving duties. If you are unsure about whether this applies to you, please contact the Research Funding Team.

  • Applicants must be either a UK/EEA national or have completed a doctorate at a UK university.
