The Darwin International Institute for the Study of Compassion (DIISC) has established the Darwin Scholarship Programme, which will initially provide funding for PhD students to study the role and relevance of compassion, cooperation and altruism in the context of their particular disciplines. Funded by the Darwin Centre Trust (DCT), Darwin Scholarships will be awarded to postgraduate candidates with outstanding academic abilities and the potential to create real compassionate change in their fields and the wider world.

So far, eleven international universities have expressed interest in co-hosting a Darwin scholar and working collaboratively with DIISC, bringing people together to promote integrative dialogue, learning and common purpose. The scholars will gather at an annual summer school in Shrewsbury to share their research and develop strategies for disseminating and applying their findings in society.

The core aim of DIISC is to foster the development of these future leaders, as intelligent and skilled practitioners and promoters of compassion. Eventually, DIISC should expand its reach, becoming a network of innovative thinkers and practitioners, all working towards the creation of a more compassionate and healthy global society.
