The Leverhulme Trust has recently announced its Research Programme grants scheme for 2010. Normally, two grants are awarded under this scheme, with a value of between £500,000 and £1.75 million per grant.

Programme Grants support long-term projects of up to 5 years around specific themes, which have been identified for this competition as 'Beauty' and 'The Impact of Diasporas'.  Programme grants are carried out by multi-disciplinary teams led by senior academic researchers.

CRASSH and RSD are holding an information session for academics who are interested in applying to this scheme and / or who wish to meet other interested applicants to build a research team. The session will provide you with:

•    information about the nature of the scheme itself and the process of application (Tamsin Mann, RSD)
•    tips on putting together a project team and case for support (Professor Simon Goldhill, Classics / Cambridge Victorian Studies Group)
•    an opportunity to discuss the themes (Dr Andrew Webber, CRASSH)

The deadline for initial expressions of interest is January 2010 with final decisions by July 2010, which indicates that projects would commence in academic year 2010-11.

Further information on the scheme can be found on the Leverhulme website http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/grants_awards/grants/research_programmes/.

If you have any questions in advance of this session, please contact Tamsin Mann (tel. (7)65447f) in the first instance, or Dr Andrew Webber
