If you agree to work with a student as their Research Mentor you will need to complete a statement of support as part of the student’s application process. There is no limit on how many scholars your department can mentor.
The minimum requirement for mentoring a student is a formal meeting at the beginning of the period of research and fortnightly meetings for the duration of each project.
As a Research Mentor the Laidlaw Scholarship will provide you with opportunities for departmental promotion, the chance at supporting original research porojects as well as financial support for your work with the Scholarship.
A Q&A with Research Mentor Duncan Petrie to get their thoughts on the Laidlaw Scholarship.
