I am a research mentor

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.

Role of a 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.

Benefits of being a research mentor

As a Research Mentor the Laidlaw Scholarship will provide you with the chance to support original research projects as well as financial support for your work with the Scholarship.
