We’re pleased to introduce the 10 doctoral students from universities across the UK who have joined us as the 10th cohort of the Cumberland Lodge Fellowship. 

From social enterprise development in Kenya to human rights in Myanmar, as well as gravitational wave astronomy, British foreign policy, and public health systems, their individual PhD research spans a broad range of themes.

Together, they share the common goal of the Fellowship – working with us, over a two-year period, to tackle the causes and effects of social division.

Nine Fellows were selected through a competitive application process, and the 10th was nominated by the Council for At-Risk Academics (Cara).

Over the next two years, they will play an active role in our conferences, events, and programme activities, as well as producing podcasts, hosting webinars, and writing for us.

Our 2023-25 Cumberland Lodge Fellows are:

They met for the first time at the annual Fellows’ Retreat which took place from 8-10 September here at the Lodge.

Applications for the Cumberland Lodge Fellowship 2024-26 will open in the Spring.
