Every year, the Cumberland Lodge Scholarship Scheme gives six doctoral students in the UK the opportunity to take part in the Lodge’s conference programme which focuses on tackling social divisions through promoting creative thinking and inclusive dialogue.

Scholars will be involved with the Lodge over two years and will gain experience in: working collaboratively; engaging in cross-disciplinary discussion; public engagement and facilitation at events; networking; and writing for a range of different audiences. They are also eligible to apply for a personal development grant of up to £300, to use in an imaginative way to promote ‘the betterment of society’, in line with the vision and mission of Cumberland Lodge as an educational foundation. They will also enjoy Cumberland Lodge’s excellent facilities in Windsor Great Park and will receive remuneration for travel expenses.

The closing date for applications is Friday 30th March 2018.

Find out more about the Lodge, its work, and the scholarship scheme in this PDF leaflet, and visit their website to apply.

Brighton graduate, Dr Uschi Klein, attended a four-day, interdisciplinary conference at Cumberland Lodge in 2016 with funding awarded by the Doctoral College. Uschi kindly wrote a blog post for us about her stay, accompanied by some spectacular photographs.

We very much hope some of our students will be keen to apply for the 2018-2020 scholarship scheme. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable experience and benefit from the expertise of Cumberland Lodge.
