Background and aims of the Scholarship Project

Higher education (HE) in further education (FE) is an important part of the college environment and the higher education landscape in general.  That said, there has been a steady stream of academic and policy literature that has highlighted the importance of enhancing scholarly activity in college HE. 

This project aims to develop a 'Scholarship Framework' that can be utilised by colleges. The  summary paper (PDF,195.94 KB) provides further detail on:

  • The background to HE & Scholarship,
  • Projects aims,
  • Conceptual Underpinning,
  • Project outputs.

The full business case (PDF,1.26 MB) and scholarship framework diagram (PDF,81.89 KB) gives more details on the Scholarship Project.

We also have a background reading list (PDF,94.09 KB) for further understanding on the conceptual underpinnings for the project.

The project runs from June 2015 for three years. For more information on the Scholarship Project please contact the project team.
