Operation of the Scholarship
Mentoring: The Scholar will liaise with the mentor, who will assist in the project, on a regular basis. The appointment of a mentor, who might be a postgraduate supervisor, will be a matter of negotiation between the TBBC and the successful applicant, at the outset of the project.
Reports: The Scholar will submit a mid-year report, which will outline progress in July, and a final report will be submitted in January of the following year. A focus of the latter will be the outcomes of the scholarship in terms of publications, conference presentations, and websites.
Successful scholars will be supplied with a more detailed document on the operation of the scholarship, including report writing, at the outset of the project.
Applications should be submitted electronically below. Any question questions about the Scholarship can be directed to Richard Cashman, Treasurer of the Tom Brock Bequest Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
