International Fellowships


2016/17 International Fellowships on the Clore Leadership Programme


Each year the Clore Leadership Programme offers a number of International Fellowships to exceptional individuals from prioritised countries outside the UK. Scholarships to undertake the International Fellowships are currently funded by two sources: the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Home Affairs Bureau of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, through the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.

How much time does it take?

The successful candidates will be based in the UK for a period of approximately four months spread over two periods: for between two and four weeks in September/October 2016 and for approximately three months culminating in the second residential leadership course in June/July 2017.  

What does it include?

The International Fellows will join the group of Clore Fellows for the two residential leadership courses and will follow an individually designed development programme, which will normally include a secondment of around eight weeks with a cultural organisation in the UK, training at business schools and attendance at conferences in the UK.  They will benefit from an individually tailored programme, based in the UK starting in September 2016, which includes:

  • Attendance at two intensive residential leadership courses alongside the Clore Fellows from 26 September to 7 October 2016 and 26 June to 6 July 2017
  • A period of secondment for approximately eight weeks at a cultural institution in the UK
  • Participation in courses and conferences in the UK.  Each International Fellow will have access to a budget of up to £14,000 to cover the costs relating to their programme including two return journeys to the UK from their home, course and conference fees, travel, accommodation, subsistence, training and development.
