Developing Socially Progressive Leaders of Tomorrow

Posted on 28 January 2020

We are delighted to announce that the Laidlaw Foundation has invited the University to once again be part of this prestigious and socially progressive leadership development programme.

Through the Laidlaw Undergraduate Research and Leadership Scholarship programme, the Laidlaw Foundation is developing  a new generation of leaders who are skilled researchers, embrace data-based decision-making, and are committed to lead with integrity.  The programme invests in talented and motivated undergraduate students, giving them the knowledge, skills and experience to become active global citizens and future leaders.
