I am wondering how my colleagues on ResearchGate view scholarship? Also, do you think we coud refer to a masters and PhD student as a scholar?
I am co-facilitating a research coaching and mentorship programme for post graduate students who received funding for their studies at a University of Tegnology (SA). These post graduate candidates are referred to as new generation scholars in the context of the programme. They are engaged in research and teaching activities and have the potential to be appointed at the institution after successful completion of their studies. A reviewer contested the use of the concept scholar, asking if we could truly say that a masters and even a PhD student is a scholar. The reviewer's feedback resulted in a number of interesting conversations about scholarship.
