Applications open on Monday 24 June for grants for academic research which focuses on the protection/resilience gap. 


Grants will be offered for, initially, a six-month proof of concept project (funding up to £50,000), followed by the chance to apply for continued funding of the same project for up to a further two years.


Applications should meet the following criteria:

  • The delivery of innovative academic research focusing on the protection and resilience gap.

  • A very clear link between the financial dimension of a risk and how it impacts on different parts of society; today and in the future.

  • That shows clear impact through stakeholder engagement, including the likelihood of leading to behaviour change.

For more information and how to apply, please read the application pack.  The deadline for applications is Friday 2 August.


 Managing the future of risk

Lloyd’s Tercentenary Research Foundation (LTRF) was established in 1988 to mark the 300th anniversary of Lloyd’s. It funds new research on risk related issues and also offers scholarships through Fulbright to study in the US and for Masters’ students in the UK. 

The LTRF works to four core principles:

  • To encourage research that has a clear, positive, and practical societal impact
  • To promote an open and collaborative approach to research, enabling inclusive results
  • To support a diverse community of excellent researchers
  • To foster a balanced dialogue, and nurture lasting relationships, between the academic and Lloyd’s market communities

Our Previous Projects

Fulbright – Lloyd’s of London Scholar and Postgraduate Awards
This programme enables British academics wishing to conduct research in areas related to risk to study in the US. The Scholar Award offers funding to study for up to 12 months in a top higher education institute in the US, whilst the Postgraduate Award provides first-year funding for a UK post-graduate to pursue a Master’s degree in the US.

Both Awards offer the recipient access to the global Fulbright programme with its distinctive enrichment opportunities and scholar benefits package. As a Fulbright Scholar or Postgraduate, awardees will join the global alumni network. Since 2012, Lloyd’s Tercentenary Research Foundation has supported 13 individuals through this programme.
