The Foundation’s trustees invite applications for Grants and Scholarships from post-graduate and under-graduate students to assist them with courses of study in Scots law, or comparative legal systems, or the law of the European Union, or foreign languages or business management.

The trustees will also consider applications from persons practising law in Scotland, whether as solicitors or advocates, those teaching Scots law, those arranging conferences, seminars and lectures, and those involved in research in, and the writing of legal text books on, Scots law and/or its relationship with other legal systems or the institutions of the European Union.

Applications may also be made for Grants to provide facilities and equipment (including computers and other IT equipment) for study and research including for the establishment and maintenance of libraries and study centres.

The grant and amount of any award, and the period for which it is to run, is within the discretion of the trustees.

Please note that the Foundation does not support students studying for LLB/Diploma in Professional Legal Practice other than in exceptional hardship circumstances, which should be explained in the application form.

Please send your completed application before the stated deadline by email to:
