Is the Laidlaw Scholarship right for me?

You may have a passion for a topic and want the opportunity to undertake a funded research project. You may be really interested in developing your leadership skills because you realise just how important these are in whatever you want to do next. Or you may want to develop your all-round knowledge, skills and experience to be as employable as possible for that next stage of your life.

The Laidlaw Scholarship was created for self-motivated and proactive students who are interested in developing their skills, primarily in research and leadership, in order to fulfill their future career ambitions and leave a lasting legacy in their chosen field.

Students applying for the 2020 scholarship should be in their first year of a three-year undergraduate programme or in their first or second year of a four-year programme.

Scholars will be expected to undertake a research project for five to six weeks in the first Summer (2020) and will have the opportunity to put into practice their leadership skills and attributes in the second summer of the programme (2021) through either a continuation of the project or an international leadership expedition.

If you are interested in developing your research and leadership skills, gaining a desirable leadership qualification and joining a global network of peers, this funded scholarship may be the perfect opportunity for you.
