"The Fellowship helped me to realise and stretch my intellectual capacity and go out of my comfort zone, knowing that I have found a way to manage and thrive in challenging circumstances. I feel excited and inspired by the future."  Clore Fellow

Applications for the 2017/18 Clore Fellowships are now closed unless you are an employee of the National Trust or are applying for the Performing Arts Consortium.

The Clore Fellowship brings together some of the most creative and dynamic cultural leaders in the UK and beyond for a life-changing adventure - it is an intense personal and professional learning experience unlike any other. The Fellowship will support you to be the leader you have the potential to be, through in-depth learning tailored to your individual needs, aspirations and circumstances.

Give yourself the space to think, learn and do. Clore Fellows take up to seven months to focus on their leadership development while staying connected to their workplace. They benefit from a diverse peer group, access to experienced leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs, artists, experts and extensive networks.

This is a learnt not a taught programme. It is action-orientated and practical. It is intellectually rigorous but not academic. It is intensive and challenging. 

The Clore Leadership Programme believes that leaders are change-makers. They are defined by their behaviours and values, their decisions and actions. We welcome applications from all parts of the cultural community: from artists through to entrepreneurs and managers, from freelancers to those working in large institutions, from rural to metropolitan.

The Fellowship Programme is generously supported by a range of funding partners. We aim to remove the economic barriers to participation as much as possible and most Fellowships are fully funded.

If you are considering applying for a Fellowship make sure to familiarise yourself with all the information below before you start an application.
