Our Funding Priorities
Through its partnerships with specifically commissioned academic institutions and research organisations, Lloyd's Tercentenary Research Foundation funds academic research by supporting new research on risk related issues and offering scholarships to study in the US.
Our Current Projects
We are currently funding two pieces of research in risk related fields. These are:
- Agua Salud: Science to advance risk mitigation and land use management in tropical landscapes (March 2017 – March 2019)
We are providing funding to the Smithsonian UK Charitable Trust to support a two year research project led by the Smithsonian Tropical research Institute (STRI). The STRI and partners will develop scenarios for the future of the Panama Canal Watershed, leveraging decades of hydrological and forestry research and data sets. This project will advance understanding of large-scale and long-term implications of land-use choices throughout the tropics and will create a science-based tool to better-inform choices that can minimize negative environmental and economic impacts.
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.
How to apply:
Application for both awards are via the Fulbright Commission website:
• Fulbright-Lloyd’s of London Scholar Award
• Fulbright-Lloyd’s of London Postgraduate Award
During 2017/2018, we are supporting three academics to carry out risk related research. Please click on their names below to find out more about their research.
