Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Awards

Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Awards

Since 2000, the Wolfson Foundation has committed £20 million to funding the Wolfson Merit Awards. The programme is jointly funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and is administered by the Royal Society.

Funding allows universities to increase academic salaries to internationally competitive levels. The intention is to enable British universities to retain in the UK and attract from abroad, scientists of outstanding achievement and potential. By 2010 over 200 researchers had received this prestigious award.

Full details of the programme, including how to apply, are available from the Royal Society.
