The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Cumberland Lodge Scholarship Scheme, 2018
Application closing date: 30 March 2018
This is a two-year programme for doctoral students studying at universities in the UK, designed to fit around their studies. The scholarship offers a unique opportunity for students from any discipline to develop skills in communication, public engagement, and interdisciplinary working. Seven scholarships are available each year. This year’s successful scholars will join the Lodge from September 2018 to September 2020.
The scheme is open to students of any age 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.
