Laidlaw Scholarship Programme

Laidlaw Scholarship Programme

Congratulations to our 2017 Laidlaw Scholars!

Over 47 students applied for 25 places on the coveted Laidlaw Scholarship Programme at Durham University. The high level of interest and outstanding quality of work meant that the judging panel had some very difficult decisions to make. The final group of scholars are made up of 11 female and 14 male undergraduates from the following faculties:

  • 7 Arts and Humanities
  • 9 Science
  • 9 Social Sciences and Health

Laidlaw scholars at the Leadership weekend held in Durham on Saturday 10 June and Sunday 11 June

Overview of the programme

The aim of the Laidlaw Scholarship Programme is to equip undergraduate students with the necessary research and leadership skills to help them fulfil their ambitions beyond their course of study, whether they intend to pursue a career in research or in another sector. We are looking for ambitious and self-motivated individuals who have the capacity to design and carry out an original research project, and to commit to developing their leadership skills, knowledge and behaviours through the leadership training element of the programme.
