The Fulbright Lloyd's Award allows academics and professionals to pursue research in any discipline related to risk at any accredited US university.
This grant covers any appropriate 3 – 12 month project.
Preference will be given to projects lasting 6 – 12 months. Those lasting less than 6 months will be considered providing justification is made for the shorter time period in the application project statement.
The Lloyd’s awards are funded by Lloyd’s Tercentenary Research Foundation, a charitable trust established by Lloyd’s in 1988 to commemorate its 300th anniversary. Since its beginnings in a coffee house in 1688 Lloyd’s has been a pioneer in insurance and has grown to become the world’s leading market for specialist insurance. Offering an unrivalled concentration of underwriting expertise and talent it provides the world with innovative and individual insurance solutions.
For 20 years Lloyd’s Tercentenary Research Foundation has provided post-doctoral fellowships in the fields of engineering, science, medicine, business and the environment. Today it continues to fund top-flight academic research through collaborating with the Fulbright Commission and academic institutions.
We’re interested in innovative solutions that address, manage, mitigate or eliminate the kinds of risks that threaten people and the planet. It’s essential that we are forward thinking in order to anticipate, identify and scope the impact of future risks: political, societal, technological and economic.
This is intended as a contribution towards any institutional fees and accommodation & maintenance costs while in the USA.
