• Attend meetings, usually 4 a year.
  • Take part in interviewing applicants and deciding on grants, about 3 times a year. Not every Trustee is involved in every interview session.
  • Act as mentor to a few grantees. This means you keep in touch with them during their course, and listen to any worries they may have.
  • Be aware of the other roles in the Trust, so as to be able to undertake one of them if required.
  • Take an interest in matters concerning part-time adult learners in the arts and humanities. Think about how we can provide a better service to part-time learners by improving our ways of working.

Meetings and interviews are at the home of the Chair or another Trustee, and are friendly and, so far as procedures allow, informal.

The Trust was founded in memory of Siew-Yue Killingley (1940-2004), a scholar, musician, poet and teacher, and commemorates her commitment to the welfare of her part-time students.
