The SCI Early Careers Committee (ECC) is organising its annual College of Scholars Day on Thursday 25 November 2021. We are planning for the meeting to be an all-day in-person event at SCI in Belgrave Square, London with the fallback option of a shorter online event depending on the COVID restrictions in place at the time.
In the morning, the event will give an overview of SCI College of Scholars activities and showcase the work of current SCI Scholars. The event will also introduce the SCI Sydney Andrew Scholarships that are being initiated this year.
For the in-person meeting we also plan to include afternoon sessions on the Daphne Jackson Fellowships, the Ramsay Fellowships and a final interactive session on advocacy and ‘Standing up for Science’.
The SCI College of Scholars comprises all current and past recipients of the RS/SCI PhD Studentships, SCI Scholarships and Travel Bursaries together with all early career award winners, early career committee members, SCI ambassadors and the Ramsay and Daphne Jackson Fellows. The Sydney Andrew scholars will also become members of the College.
This event is open to all members of the college of scholars and those in the early/mid stages of their careers.
