I would like to be a Laidlaw Scholar
The Laidlaw Scholarship aims to develop highly talented and motivated undergraduates as global citizens and future leaders and to support them to fulfil their potential and re-invest their skills in ways that will benefit others.
The scholarship is competitive and up-to 25 places will be offered in Durham each year. In addition to working alongside leading academics on a research project of your chosing, you will also undergo a bespoke leadership development programme and have opportunities to be able to put your leadership skills into operation in a way that contributed to various global communities.
The scholarships are supported by a generous stipend of up to £6000 to enable you to participate in two 6 week summer periods in both research and leadership activities.
Applications for the Laidlaw Scholars programme at Durham open in October each year with a deadline for submission in December. Durham University 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. There are no restrictions on discipline, division, nationality or fee status.
