The Scholarship Framework is a toolkit of resources aimed at supporting colleges with higher education provision to enhance student learning through forms of scholarly activity. 

In the framework you will find a wide range of resources including guidance notes, interactive handbooks and self-assessment instruments. All the resources have been tested in college settings or supported by previous applied research and verified by industry experts. The resources can be adapted according to need and college context. In many cases you are likely to customise the resource to fit into your college’s culture and history. It is your decision about which resources you decide to adopt. However, the experience of the project is that if you are new to scholarly activity, your starting point for success is to develop a college-wide scholarship policy and integrate scholarship into the college’s appraisal processes.

The Scholarship Framework was developed as an output of the Scholarship Project, funded by HEFCE Catalyst Fund, and delivered by the Association of Colleges.
