‘The betterment of society’ – Cumberland Lodge Scholarships available

Cumberland_Lodge2A fantastic opportunity is available for PhD students to apply for a Cumberland Lodge Scholarship. The scholarships are aimed at scholars who are able to demonstrate a commitment to working for ‘the betterment of society’ through their academic research and/or other activities. The charity is currently focused on its work around ethical challenges in health, policing and social cohesion, but applications are welcome from any academic discipline.

This programme is open to 1st or 2nd year doctoral students studying in the UK. Scholars will be given the opportunity to take an active role in conferences outside their own academic disciplines. By participating scholars will gain experience in working collaboratively, engage in cross-disciplinary discussions, public engagement and facilitation at events, networking and writing for different audiences.

The scholarship programme is designed to fit around the demands of doctoral research, although there is a commitment to be at the Lodge for six days a year, plus participate in two evening engagements per year.

Scholars will also be eligible to apply for a personal development grant of up to £300 over the 2 year scholarship period, which they should use in a creative way to promote ‘the betterment of society’.
