Developing a college-wide scholarship policy


Nick Davy and John Lea, Association of Colleges 


For scholarship to become embedded in a college HE setting it needs to be supported by college-wide scholarship policies that can set a standard or benchmark. This guidance note advises on how a college can develop a scholarship policy based on colleges’ practice and research supported by the scholarship project. The note needs to be read in conjunction with the project’s research publication: Scholarly Activity Policies and Practices Research Project: Combined Report (by Jonathan Simmons) (here). A strong and effective college scholarship policy should feature in submissions to external Quality Assurance processes, the Teaching Excellence Framework, different forms of Degree Awarding Powers and useful for validating university partners.
