The Leach/RAI Fellowship was established by the Trustees of the Esperanza Trust to honor the memory of the founder of the Trust, Professor Sir Edmund Leach, and further his expressed aim of promoting anthropology.

Previous hosts of the Leach/RAI Fellowship have been Brunel University (2011-2016), Manchester University (1991-1998), Edinburgh University (1999-2002), University of Sussex (2003-2006) and National University of Ireland, Maynooth (2007-2010). In 2002-2003, 2006-2007 and 2010-2011 no fellowship was awarded and the programme was reviewed.
