How much time does it take?

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 2018, which includes:

  • Attendance at two intensive residential leadership courses alongside the Clore Fellows in September 2018 and June 2019
  • 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.
