Cumberland Lodge has offered subsidised residential and non-residential study retreats for students in higher education for nearly 70 years. We now welcome about 4,000 students every year.
As part of the programme we offer St Catharine's Sessions, which encourage students to reflect critically on ethical, moral and social issues outside of their own field of study.
Cumberland Lodge offers bursaries to help students with limited means attend our conferences and join visiting university groups for study retreats. Find out more here.
Scholarships and mentoring
Cumberland Lodge offers two scholarship schemes to mentor and support PhD students and early career researchers and encourage them to use their personal skills and academic studies for the betterment of society.
Our Cumberland Colloquia scheme also offers early career researchers and doctoral students the opportunity to organise their own inter-disciplinary conferences at Cumberland Lodge, which engage with contemporary ethical and social issues. In the process we seek to nurture thought leadership for the future.
Resources from previous Colloquia can be found on our Read, Watch, Listen webpages.
