College of Scholars
SCI has established its College of Scholars to help current Scholars make the most of the opportunities an SCI Scholarship provides, and to make past and present Scholars aware of SCI resources that may be of value to them in their current research and future career. Past and present Scholars are automatic members of the College of Scholars.
The College will provide a framework to facilitate the integration of Scholars within SCI. It seeks to support them throughout the funded period by providing mentoring, networking and a welcoming forum for their research presentations. After the completion of their funded period, the College provides a platform for continued contact once their careers develop, drawing on the expertise of former Scholars as mentors and lay-advisors to SCI. By accompanying Scholars as their careers mature, the College will support and develop a strong network and build a base for future leadership.
- Develop and support a community of current and former Scholars, within SCI's network
- Support Scholars in their research endeavours and help them develop their careers
- Build a base for future active membership and leadership within SCI

A significant opportunity for SCI Scholars is to publish in SCI’s academic journals. The College will be working to facilitate this process. More
The Day of Science and Careers returned to London in April 2015. This year, the event was also run in Scotland in June. Visit the College of Scholars Diary for reviews of these events and upcoming dates for your diaries. More
These events provide opportunities for Scholars to present their work to a wider audience and broaden their network in academia and industry.
