Chevening Clore Leadership Fellowship (United Kingdom)

The Chevening Clore Leadership Fellowship is a partnership between the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Clore Leadership Programme, offering mid-career professionals in the arts and culture sector an exceptional opportunity to undertake an individually tailored leadership programme in the UK. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office funds up to six international fellows to become part of a cohort of approximately 25 fellows, from across the UK and internationally, on the Clore Leadership Programme. The Programme has been shaping exceptional cultural leaders for the last 13 years.

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. Fellows work in small groups on practical projects, and attend masterclasses, talks, and workshops on topics like change management, strategic planning, and cultural policy.

The Clore Leadership Programme believes that leaders are change-makers. They are defined by their behaviours and values, their decisions and actions.

Each Fellowship includes:

  • Attendance at two mandatory intensive residential leadership courses (lasting two weeks each) in September 2018 and in June/July 2019

  • Access to a training budget of up to £14,000 

  • A period of secondment of approximately eight weeks at a cultural institution in the UK

  • An individually tailored fellowship learning plan which may include participation in courses, conferences, and other professional development activities in the UK

  • Support from a mentor in the UK

  • Accommodation and living expenses for the duration of the Fellowship

  • Travel in the UK

To apply, you should be an artist, a cultural professional/entrepreneur and citizen of Brazil, China, India, Jordan, Egypt, Mexico, or South Africa. You must not hold British nationality.

Deadline: 7 November 2017
