As a Dalyell Scholar you have access to mentoring to help you develop your leadership potential. Mentoring is co-curricular, meaning it doesn't contribute to your degree requirements.
There are three parts to the mentoring:
Your Dalyell coordinator will help you get started.
The University values Dalyell Scholars as future leaders and wants to give you a role in shaping your opportunities within the Dalyell stream. Each year, Dalyell Faculty leads will appoint two student representatives from each faculty or school offering the Dalyell stream. If you are interested in becoming a Dalyell student representative, contact your Dalyell Faculty lead.
Each Dalyell Scholar is entitled to a Dalyell Global Mobility Scholarship of up to $2000. We encourage you to use this towards either a short-term global experience (winter, summer or internship) or a semester exchange program. See our Study abroad and exchange page for more information on the programs available to you.
In response to current international travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, current Dalyell Scholars may also use the Dalyell Global Mobility Scholarship towards domestic and virtual enrichment experiences up to 30 June 2022. All domestic and virtual enrichment experiences must meet the intent of the scholarship, be of direct relevance to your course of study, and be approved by your Dalyell Faculty Lead.
Once you are accepted into a program, or have registered for a course or activity, you will need to submit a request for the Dalyell Global Mobility Scholarship online.
When you join the Dalyell stream, you will have access to the Dalyell Scholars e-community in Canvas. This e-community will allow you to interact with your peers who are enrolled in the stream and come from a wide range of courses across the University. Announcements are regularly posted by Dalyell faculty leads, so you can find out about co-curricular aspects of the stream and receive important messages from your faculty.
Participating in co-curricular and academic opportunities available within the stream will help you to get to know your fellow high achieving students from across faculties, schools and disciplines. The e-community in Canvas will help you find out about upcoming co-curricular opportunities.
Dalyell Scholars have the opportunity to participate in advanced writing workshops drawing on creative writing processes. These workshops are not essay writing support sessions, but a unique opportunity to push the envelope and build skills for life beyond university. They are custom-designed for students who know how to write, but who want to wring out all the powerful possibility of language.
Beyond the essay is open to all Dalyell Scholars and will be held over Zoom from 1.30-3pm on the following dates:
