  2. The bursary is only available to students starting their course in 2017.
  3. The payment of any bursary awarded will not take place until the Lawscot Foundation is in receipt of all evidence required, including the school report and reference, and evidence of matriculation.
  4. Bursaries will be paid in two instalments in October and January of each academic year. 
  5. Bursary recipients are required to take part in the Lawscot Foundation Mentoring Scheme.

Bursary recipients will be required to demonstrate that they are progressing from year to year and meeting a high academic standard and will be expected to provide the Trustees with a report each year with details of their progress.
  9. Bursary recipients will be expected to forward copies of their exam results to the Lawscot Foundation each year and those results must show that the student is capable of passing their degree. If a recipient falls to meet these academic standards then the Lawscot Foundation Trustees will investigate, and if necessary, stop any and all future bursary payments.
  10. Lawscot Foundation Bursary recipients are required to take part in Lawscot Foundation marketing and fundraising activities. This will not be an onerous task and will be limited to the occasional picture and interview by the Lawscot Foundation about their progress and consent to being named in Lawscot Foundation literature.

To be considered for a bursary for the Lawscot Foundation you must be prepared to attend an interview, if required, at the Law Society Office which is based at Atria One, 144 Morrison Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8EX.
