The Scholarship Project is a national project which aims to:

“support the development and embedding of a distinct college higher education scholarly ethos across the sector” (AoC website, 2015)

Hereford College of Arts is one of fifteen colleges involved in the second phase of the project, working with Gloucestershire College (Gloscol) and South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.

Sarah Crowson is delighted to have been appointed as Scholarship Development Manager for HCA and she looks forward to working with staff researchers, student researchers and employers as well as the AoC in developing and trialing a model of scholarship appropriate to an art college and college based higher education context (perhaps one that uses a multi-modal approach to research as well as more traditional research methodologies).

Please have a look around the site. Sarah will be showcasing good practice around HCA in the form of case studies and blogging about student and staff research projects.

We hope to launch various initiatives, including a staff programme of ‘Creative Lunches’ and a Student Journal. Watch this space as the project develops, and please get in touch with Sarah at s.crowson@hca.ac.uk or post on our online pinboard if you have any suggestions or queries.

The project is funded by the HEFCE Catalyst Fund and supported by the NUS, QAA, and the HEA.
