Rowland Scholarship

“Education is the ability to see the hidden connections.”
– VACLAV HAVEL

Intersticia UK funds the Rowland Scholarship at Goodenough College, London. The scholarship is awarded to a student undertaking a one-year Masters programme at a University in London who has applied to live at the College but needs some financial assistance in order to do so.

The Rowland Scholarship is the first such scholarship made possible through the generosity of an alumna or alumnus, and was awarded for the first time in 2013.

Doughton Scholarship

“(Science and) Technology is humanity’s accelerant. Because of technology everything we make is always in the process of becoming. Processes—the engines of flux—are now more important than products. … Our greatest invention in the past 200 years was not a particular gadget or tool but the invention of the scientific process itself.”
– KEVIN KELLY “THE INEVITABLE”

Intersticia UK funds the Doughton Scholarship for Women in Science. The scholarship is available to any woman from any country who wishes to pursue and apply their knowledge and understanding of the natural, social and virtual worlds following a systematic methodology based on evidence. The Scholarship can be used to improve their knowledge and skills, experience in working within, or teaching, Scientific knowledge, and demonstrate a strong desire to promote the teaching and pursuit of a career in science to women.

Leadership Scholarship

“A leader is one who takes the hardship of finding a better way of doing things for the common good and then selflessly shares the knowledge with others by guiding them on that path.”
– AVIJIT DUTTA

The Intersticia Scholarship for Leadership seeks to support individuals who recognise and are ready to take the next step in their own personal leadership development.

 

Individuals should seek to utilise the Intersticia Scholarship to improve their knowledge, skills, and experience in working with organisations which themselves are seeking to enoble, empower and enable others to proactively better their lives.

Bell Shakespeare Writers & Educators

“What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable!
In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the
world, the paragon of animals!
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor
woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.”
– HAMLET TO ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN, ACT II, SCENE II

The work of Shakespeare never ceases to amaze and inspire and it strikes at the heart of what it is to be human – vulnerable, dangerous, and yet so capable of creating beauty.

Since 2015 we have been working with Bell Shakespeare to support the Writers Fellowship.  This project provides a mid-career Writing Fellow with two days a week of employment with the Company for up to two years, giving them the time to focus wholly on their writing and benefit from desk-space and the practical resources offered within a major performing arts organisation.  It also creates a mentoring environment as successive Fellows come on board over time.
