2022 Bursary Award Applications


The Lawscot Foundation is committed to supporting talented young people, who have the potential to benefit from and contribute to the legal profession. Their aim is to ensure that, if you have drive and talent, money will not be a barrier to becoming a solicitor in Scotland. The Lawscot Foundation will give priority to individuals from less-advantaged backgrounds, so your social and economic situation will be taken into consideration.

The support offered will be a bursary each year of the LLB degree and the postgraduate Diploma (the awards may vary but could be around £2,500 per year, totalling up to £12,500 by completion of the qualifications). Just as important will be the opportunity to be supported by a mentor working in the legal profession throughout university. As well as the bursary, this is a career development programme and all successful applicants are expected to participate in a programme of events throughout the year
