Here's how to apply

To apply to become a CIH fellow you must be a current chartered member of CIH.

Assessment for fellowship is based on the following criteria:

  • Contribution to the profession and the community - you have been actively engaged in developing and supporting other members of the profession and/or the community and can demonstrate you have made a difference.
  • Leadership - you have shown leadership experience in your field, developing and delivering a vision, encouraging others and advancing the environment in the sector in which you operate.

As part of your application you will need to provide the following:

  • Current CV
  • Evidence of 20 hours CPD during the past 12 months
  • A personal statement (1000 words maximum)
  • Statements by two referees

All applications will be acknowledged and a timetable for reviews will be confirmed. Members can apply at any time and applications will be held until the next meeting of the panel.

Please note a non-refundable fee of £250 is due at the time of application. Applications will not go before the CIH Fellowship Admissions Panel until full payment has been received.
