Become a sustainable leadership scholar with a funded place for the Post Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Leadership

The Institute for Leadership and Sustainability (IFLAS) is accepting applications for the new Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Leadership; aimed at experienced professionals seeking an academic context to explore how to increase their impact. 

The course begins in 2014, and requires two visits to the Lake District, UK, of one week each, and then a module of independent study.  

Through sponsorship by the Robert Kennedy College, there are scholarships for two students to have their £3,333 fees paid. The scholarships are made through a competitive award and are only open to UK or EU nationals only. 

The scholarship provides the opportunity to study in the heart
of the Lake District National Park during two residential weeks.
To apply, complete the following steps before January 30th 2014:

The article must be on one or more of the topics of the programme: sustainable leadership, experiential learning, the sharing economy or community currency. The article must mention at some point why courses like the PGC in Sustainable Leadership, or its modules (such as the module “Sustainable Exchange”) are important, and link to the course website: The article must be published between December 9th 2013 and January 30th 2014.  The article must indicate that you are the author.
