We are looking to recruit the next generation of responsible leaders. Leaders play an especially important role today as we turn our attention to the recovery of the region and consider how best to tackle longstanding inequalities of the North East. We are committed to supporting individuals who are not afraid to challenge the status quo and ask searching questions about what kind of society and economy we want to create.

We aim to attract students from all sectors whose organisations or role directly addresses or contributes to challenging one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The diversity of our cohort is central to our philosophy of a challenging and developmental learning space for all our students and to reflect the regional social and economic landscape in the North East.

We are particularly keen to attract candidates from under-represented groups such as those from Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Communities. The Scholarships will reward candidates who have the potential to empower, motivate and provide direction in their particular context.

Successful candidates will demonstrate how their work directly impacts on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and in particular (although not limited to) inclusivity and social justice.
