Canon Collins/James Learmonth Scholarships 2023

James Learmonth was an influential educational practioner in the UK who believed strongly that education was the key to greater inclusion, social stability and international co-operation. He also believed that teachers and educational leaders can only be effective if they continue learning. When James died of cancer in 2003, his wife, family and numerous colleagues and friends decided to establish the James Learmonth Scholarship Programme in his memory. The aim of this programme is to support teachers and educational leaders in Malawi to pursue studies in education.

Canon Collins Trust administers both scholarships in memory of James Learmonth and Elizabeth Bird.
