The John Smith Trust is working to promote equal opportunities in and through its Fellowship Programme. The aim of our policy is to ensure that all those who come into contact with the Trust or the Fellowship Programme receive equal treatment across ethnic or national origins, religion, gender, marital status, disability, sexual orientation or class, and are not disadvantaged by conditions or requirements that cannot be shown to be justified.


The John Smith Trust will use the information completed by you as part of the selection process for the granting of a John Smith Fellowship, according to the criteria set by UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the John Smith Trust (JST). If selection is successful your information will be used to set up and administer a programme designed to meet your needs. It will also be used to evaluate and report on the outcome of your programme. Evaluation will include follow-up contact with you by the John Smith Trust after you have returned home.

Your information will be used within the John Smith Trust for these purposes only, and will also be disclosed to the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the institutions and organisations which you will visit in the UK, for the same purpose only. By returning this form to us you consent to our processing this sensitive personal data about you where this is necessary for this purpose.

Under the 1998 Data Protection Act you have a right to ask for a copy of the information we hold on you, for which we will charge a fee. Contact the JST to request this information.
