A portrait of Daphne Jackson

Our Board of Trustees meets twice a year, sets the vision and strategy for the Daphne Jackson Trust and ensures that we meet the objectives of our Charter and our legal & statutory requirements. All Trustees are members of Board.

Our Finance and General Purposes Committee meets quarterly, deals with our day-to-day operations and is responsible for risk. This Committee is made up of Trustees and relevant staff, with the Trust’s auditors in attendance as necessary.

Our Special Discretionary Fund  Committee assesses requests from Fellows for extra funding relating to exceptional research needs or cases of financial hardship, where establishment or satisfactory completion of a Fellowship would otherwise be jeopardised.

Our Awards Strategy Committee meets twice a year to consider strategic issues concerning the application process and award of Fellowships. This Committee is made up of Trustees, members of the Awards Assessment Panel and relevant staff members.

Our Awards Assessment Panel considers applications on a quarterly basis, with all members meeting in person once a year. This panel is comprised of a large number of STEM subject experts. Each Fellowship is assessed by six members of the panel, chosen on the basis of their subject expertise.

Executive Officer Tim Julier provides the secretariat for all Daphne Jackson Trust committees.
