The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) and Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS) Mentoring Scheme

The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS) is delighted to partner with the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) on a mentoring scheme for ESRC funded students.

The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS) is delighted to partner with the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) on a mentoring scheme for ESRC funded students. 

Our aims for the scheme are:  

  • To awaken and develop sensitivity to the value of interdisciplinarity for researchers  
  • To enhance the student experience by supporting professional development and social capital (research impact, developing networks, careers advice)  
  • To support students’ engagement with their own professional development by encouraging them to negotiate the terms of their mentoring needs with their mentor as the relationship develops 
  • To contribute to the strategic aims of the RSE and SGSSS to create more cross-sector partnerships that support diverse and interdisciplinary research 

Further information about this scheme can be found in our Student Guidance Document. 

Applications for the 2020/21 mentoring scheme are open until Friday 31 July. ESRC Funded researchers can apply for the scheme on GradHub.
