The majority of Fellowships are funded by a range of trusts, foundations and Arts Councils so there is no additional cost to the individual.
Depending on the type of Fellowship awarded, you may receive a bursary of £15,000 which can be paid either to you or to your employer to compensate for the period of time needed to focus on your development programme.
For Consortium-supported Fellowships, the nominating employer will continue to pay your agreed salary, employer's National Insurance, any agreed pension contribution and other current benefits and entitlements. Your employer will also meet any back-fill costs throughout the Fellowship.
International Fellows have access to funding for their development, travel, accommodation and subsistence costs. See International Fellowships for further details.
If self-employed or taking a career break:
If you are self-employed or taking a career break whilst on your Fellowship, you will normally be eligible for a bursary of £15,000. This does not apply to Consortium-supported Fellowships.
If you're staying in employment during the Fellowship:
If you are planning on remaining in employment during your Fellowship, but are not in receipt of a Consortium-sponsored Fellowship, you will need to provide evidence of support from your employer when you submit your application. If you are offered a Fellowship, we will discuss with your employer the level of compensation we will pay to them for the periods when you are away from the workplace. The maximum amount we will offer is £15,000. This does not apply to Consortium-supported Fellowships.
For Consortium-supported Fellowships, the nominating employer supporting the Fellow will continue to pay his or her agreed salary, employer's National Insurance, any agreed pension contribution and other current benefits and entitlements.
All funded Fellows resident in the EU (including those supported by their employer as part of a Consortium) will have access to a budget of up to £7,500 towards the costs of their individual development programme.
In addition, the Clore Leadership Programme will pay for the following:
- Mentoring and coaching
- Two residential leadership courses
- Specially designed workshops and learning opportunities
