TLRP's 'Meetings of Minds' Fellowships Scheme targets educational researchers (not restricted to TLRP staff, all applications welcome) who are already established in the field with high quality publications but are yet to become Principal Investigators (or equivalent) in their own right.
Modest funding will be provided for a targeted mentoring programme with a more experienced colleague working to enhance the applicant’s ability to secure research funding and publish their work.
The Scheme's purpose is to enhance UK-wide research capacity by helping the next generation of research leaders' progress. Funding has been allocated for up to 30 Fellowships in the period up to December 2008.
TLRP's RTF scheme has supportted five senior practitioners in engaging in advanced study linked to major TLRP projects. The work exemplifies the Programme's commitment to high quality research, high levels of relevence and capacity building.
