2015-2017 and 2016-2018 Cumberland Lodge Scholars

Cumberland Lodge has two scholarship programmes, the Amy Buller PhD Scholarship and our Cumberland Lodge Scholarships for doctoral students.

Amy Buller PhD Scholarship 

This three-year scholarship designed to give an outstanding researcher the opportunity to study for a PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London, and to be involved in our work with students by helping to host weekend study retreats. The first Amy Buller Scholar, Katherine O’Lone, joined us in 2014. She is a social psychologist with research interests in the psychology of making confessions. Find out more about our Amy Buller Scholarship here.

Cumberland Lodge Scholarships

These two-year scholarships are open to doctoral students from any university in the UK. We recruit up to six scholars per year and the successful applicants are mentored and given the chance to get involved in our programme of educational conferences and seminars.
