University of York undergraduate students must be in their first year of a three-year degree or in the first or second year of a four-year degree in order to apply for the Laidlaw Scholarship 2023. Students who are planning a placement year need to be able to commit to and engage with all Laidlaw activities, even when on placement. By applying to the scholarship, students are confirming that they agree to this.
Selected students must be available to undertake a funded research project during the Summer of 2023 and the Leadership In Action project during the summer of 2024. This constitutes full-time work over two summers and scholars, therefore, cannot commit to other scholarships or employment (other than weekend work) for the duration of these two summers.
There are no restrictions on discipline, division, nationality or fee status.
