A diverse and balanced board
We are proud that the Scottish Funding Council was one of the first public bodies in Scotland to achieve the Government’s ambition of equal gender representation.
Our Council Board currently consists of seven men and seven women drawn from diverse backgrounds and with a balance of interests and expertise across SFC’s policy and investment areas.
Members of the Council Board are appointed by the First Minister of Scotland and have a collective responsibility for the proper conduct of the Council's affairs. They are not appointed as representatives of individual organisations.
The Council meets regularly throughout the year and we publish the papers of each meeting.

The Council committees advise the board on specific responsibilities or undertake specific functions; these meet either regularly on given cycles or as required. We publish meeting papers from each committee.
