Early Career Researcher Network (BA)

Prize: Fellowships awarded competitively


The British Academy’s Early Career Researcher Network was launched in Autumn 2021 in partnership with the Wolfson Foundation, which agreed to support the pilot phase over an initial two years. However, following the successful pilot, the Network will now continue for the next three years to Autumn 2027. The overall ambition is for the Network to be a permanent and long-lasting programme.

The Early Career Researcher Network is an inclusive, researcher-led membership body accessible to all UK-based early career researchers (ECRs) working in the humanities and social sciences – regardless of their funding source or background.
