LECF 2018 Cambridge host institutions

Host institutions for the internal matching funding competition

Applications are accepted from the ‘ranking units’ listed below. This list is based on the University’s departmental/faculty structure, and reflects the way in which the Leverhulme Trust is prepared to set up their awards. However, please note:

  • Applicants based in cross-School Centres or Institutes (marked**) in which any grant associated with them would be held, should apply through that Centre or Institute, rather than through the University department with which their academic host is associated. Each applicant may make only one application.
  • Applicants from other bodies (e.g. the Fitzwilliam Museum) should apply to the most appropriate ranking unit from the list below.
