Would you like to join the ALT ELESIG Scholar Scheme (pilot)?

The Scholar Scheme (pilot) will be 6 months in duration. It will commence in February 2021 and complete in July 2021.

The scheme is seeking both scholar applicants and scholar advisors.

  • Scholar applicants are those seeking a professional learning opportunity

There are three pathways in the pilot scheme:

  1. Early-career professionals who would like to widen their professional network and develop a feasible professional development plan.
  2. Mid-career professionals seeking to consolidate their skills and experience through developing an application for Senior CMALT or Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA).
  3. Colleagues who would like to establish or better ground their publication practice and develop a publishing plan to disseminate your research.

Each scholar will be matched with an advisor and engage with them over the duration of the scheme. There will be opportunities to engage with other scholars at particular times during the scheme.

As a scholar you will be asked to:

  • Attend an ELESIG Scholar Scheme workshop (this will be run online and will be no more that one hour or one hour and half.
  • Meet and engage with your scholar advisor through four one-to-one meetings. This will vary depending on who your advisor is and what your commitments are. You may meet each month for one hour (March, April, May and June) or you may meet less times for longer or more often for less.
  • Participate in the ELESIG Scholar Scheme Showcase. It is envisaged that this will be in July 2021. It may be either online or in person. As the scheme progesses you will find out more information in regard to this element of the commitment.
