The Trust Conference Scholarship Programme

Apply HERE



The Trust Conference Scholarship Programme funds frontline activists and human rights defenders from across the world to attend the annual conference. In 2017, we received applications from 90 countries and selected Scholars from developing nations with expert knowledge of our conference themes.

This year, we will award up to 60 scholarships to applicants from diverse disciplines that will bring unique perspectives and help forge tangible commitments at Trust Conference. For global leaders who want to connect and take action, the prestigious Trust Conference Scholarship Programme offers access to an influential gathering of NGOs, heads of corporations, lawyers, public servants and philanthropists from around the world.


Scholarship selection will be based on a rating system developed by the scholarship review committee. Scholarship recipients will use their bursary to cover all travel, visa and accommodation costs to attend Trust Conference 2017. There is no further funding available to cover expenses. Scholarships will be awarded at three levels:

  • Ticket only: One non-transferable ticket to Trust Conference
  • Partial scholarship: One non-transferable ticket and £500 bursary
  • Full scholarship: One non-transferable ticket and £1,000 bursary

The Trust Conference Scholarship Programme is open to all applicants working in the areas of human rights; including women’s rights, education, human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Priority will be given to applicants from developing countries who will demonstrate their participation at Trust Conference will enhance their work in their own communities.
