The Laidlaw Scholarship in Research and Leadership programme was launched at Durham University in 2017, building upon Lord Laidlaw’s visionary commitment to supporting undergraduate student development and education.
Laidlaw Scholarships equip undergraduate students with research and leadership skills to help them pursue their academic and professional aspirations beyond their current course of study.
The Programme comprises two mandatory elements:
Successful applicants will receive a total stipend of up to £6,000 over the three year duration of the programme.
The programme will also provide opportunities for interaction between Laidlaw scholars in other Universities
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.
A specification of what is expected of a Laidlaw Scholar, together with a person specification can be found here.
The leadership programme will be a required element of the scholarship. Initially you need to commit to being available for a weekend event in June 2018
