Cumberland Lodge Scholarship

logoCongratulations to Heather Hatton, who is one of ten recipients of a Cumberland Lodge Scholarship for 2019-21. This programme offers doctoral students based at UK universities the opportunity to set themselves apart, by honing their public engagement, communications and event facilitation skills. They have the chance to network with senior figures in public life and to participate in, or help to lead discussions with, people of all ages, backgrounds and perspectives that ultimately inform recommendations for practical action and policy change.
