Laidlaw undergraduate research & leadership scholarships

In 2017 the Faculty of Education, Social Sciences and Law is able to offer three undergraduate research and leadership scholarships (UGRLs).

UGRLs are generously funded by alumni to enable you to develop your research and leadership capabilities by participating in established academic research projects as preparation for future research and leadership roles in further study or employment.

As well as research, scholars will also be able to participate in training courses that will build leadership skills through attending a series of residential and one day events through the period of the scholarship.

These UGRLs are open to current first year students in the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Thinking of applying?

Read the project proposals carefully and select the one that you would like to apply for. Read the information for applicants. Discuss the project with the project supervisor. Send in your application (CV and application form) by 28th February 2017 (5pm).

Interviews will be held in the week of 20th March 2017.

All projects are open to all ESSL students, not just from the school hosting the project:
