Our two-year Cumberland Lodge Scholarship programme offers six doctoral students the opportunity to be involved in the work of Cumberland Lodge each year.

Now in its fourth year, the scheme is open to doctoral students studying in the UK and is designed to fit around the demands of doctoral research. The scheme is open to any student enrolled on a doctoral programme, including those studying both full and part time, and to those undertaking professional doctorates as well as more traditional paths of study.

Scholars are given the opportunity to take an active role in conferences outside their own academic disciplines. By getting involved in helping to facilitate our inter-disciplinary, cross-sector conferences and lectures, they gain experience of working collaboratively, engaging in cross-disciplinary discussions and writing blogs and short reports for different audiences.

Through this they develop public engagement, networking, communication and event co-ordination skills.

Our scholars are required to attend events at the Lodge on at least six days of the year and to participate in at least two evening engagements per year.
