Deadline – May 3, 2019
The Trust Conference Changemakers Programme, formerly known as the Scholarship Programme, is part of the Trust Conference, hosted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation from November 13-14, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.
The Trust Conference Changemakers Programme funds frontline activists and human rights defenders from around the world to attend the annual conference. In 2018, they received applications from 90 countries and selected Changemakers with expert knowledge of their conference themes.
This year, the programme will award up to 60 scholarships to applicants from diverse disciplines who will bring their unique perspectives and take action at Trust Conference. The Trust Conference Changemakers Programme offers access to an influential gathering of NGOs, heads of corporations, lawyers, public servants and philanthropists.
The Trust Conference Changemakers Programme is open to all applicants working in the area of human rights. Priority will be given to applicants from developing countries who can demonstrate how their participation in Trust Conference will enhance their work and impact.
Selection will be based on a rating system developed by the Changemakers Programme review committee. Successful applicants will use their bursary (if applicable) to cover travel, visa and accommodation costs to attend Trust Conference 2019. There is no further funding available to cover expenses. Support will be awarded in three tiers:
Ticket only (one non-transferable ticket to attend both days of Trust Conference)
Partial scholarship (one non-transferable ticket + a £750 bursary to help cover travel and accommodation expenses)
Full scholarship (one non-transferable ticket + a £1,250 bursary to help cover travel and accommodation expenses)
Applications will close on Friday May 3rd 2019.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in June 2019.
