The Leverhulme Trust was established by the Will of William Hesketh Lever, the founder of Lever Brothers. Since 1925 the Trust has provided grants and scholarships for research and education. Today, it is one of the largest all-subject providers of research funding in the UK, distributing approximately £80m a year.

Central has received generous grants from the Leverhulme Trust to support its Research activities and also Applied Theatre students.  Since the first grant in 2007, Leverhulme funding has enabled Central’s Applied Theatre students to learn through vital work study projects and to undertake key elements of their training via placements outside London.
The grant to Central for the period 2019 to 2022 continues to support opportunities for Applied Theatre students and will also make six new scholarships each year available, with a value of £10,000 each.
