Learning for Purpose (LfP) is a unique component of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship with a focus on practical skill building through tailored learning. The programme seeks to support and equip Scholars in their personal and professional development as researchers and potential leaders striving to make a positive difference in the lives of others. LfP facilitates opportunities for Scholars to explore and reflect on questions pertaining to leadership, with the aim of fostering mindful leaders.
LfP organises bespoke workshops by world experts and encourages peer-to-peer and informal learning through discussion panels and events amongst current Scholars. One critical outcome of LfP trainings is a set of transferable skills for each Scholar, which can be used across academic disciplines. LfP aims to equip all Scholars with the skills to achieve their goals.
Current Co-Directors: Anna Guasco & Avani Tandon Vieira
