The Wolfson Foundation and British Academy today announced a major initiative to promote and support high quality research in the humanities and social sciences across the UK.

It is the largest ever single grant awarded in the humanities and social sciences by the Foundation and will see the British Academy deliver a transformative programme to support early career researchers. 

Please note: The Wolfson/British Academy Fellowships will be administered by the British Academy. More information can be found on the British Academy website.

This initiative is the second of two £10 million initiatives announced by the Wolfson Foundation in the past month. The first was a major mental health research initiative, supported by the UK’s leading mental health charities, encouraging proposals from research organisations to advance the understanding and treatment of mental health conditions.
