Tricia Williams Scholarship

Tricia Williams IMC Scholarship

This annual award of £1000 is offered in memory of Tricia Williams, Principal of Iron Mill College from 2011 to 2015. Tricia was warm, compassionate, creative and relational, and made a very substantial difference to the lives of many people throughout her life. She believed passionately in supporting students to go forward and make a difference too.
The Prize is awarded to the student who can most clearly demonstrate excellent progress and engagement as a student, outstanding potential as a counsellor and evidence of giving back to their college and community. If you would like to apply, please read the terms and criteria below carefully, and ensure your application reaches us by the stated deadline.

This Scholarship is for Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and FdA Integrative Counselling course applicants only.

Award Details

The 2021 award is now open for applications from students who started their training on an Advanced Diploma or FdA/BA programme in Easter 2020 or September 2020.

You must send in your application form fully completed by 10th May. Shortlisted applicants will then be invited to attend for their interview and presentation on 3rd June. As the decision will be made directly after the full set of presentations, we are not able to offer alternative dates should you be unable to attend for any reason.


  • The prize money will be allocated to payment of fees for students with fees still to pay on their course; students who have already fully paid their fees in advance will have their prize issued as a cheque.
  • The decision of the panel is final and based upon the judgment of the panel. The process is therefore not open to appeal.
  • The panel will consist of at least three members of the senior management team of the college, who have not taught any of the applicants and have no conflict of interest with the applicants.
  • The eligibility criteria are subject to checking by the college, and any application not fully and clearly meeting the eligibility criteria will not be shortlisted.

Who is eligible?

Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and FdA Integrative Counselling students may apply for this award towards the end of their first year of training (Autumn intakes) or beginning of their second year of training (Spring Intakes). Eligibility criteria apply for this award and are listed on the application form.

How many awards are offered?

There is one award per year; however the College may, entirely at its own discretion, occasionally offer more than one award.

There are two parts of the application process:

1.  A written application
2.  A presentation and conversation with the Interview Panel

Details are listed on the application form which can be found in the download section of this page.
