Hackney BCL Scholarship
Who can apply? Any applicant for the Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL).
Money available: The scholarship covers course fees, college fees and a grant for living costs for full-time students of at least £14,057.
Application details: The Hackney BCL Scholarship is jointly funded by the University and by a collection of Wadham College alumni, in honour of Jeffrey Hackney, the College’s Fellow in Law from 1976-2008 and an extremely prominent and much loved tutor.
If you wish to be considered for this scholarship you should submit your application for the BCL to the Faculty of Law in the ordinary way by the January 2016 deadline. There is no separate scholarship application process, and you do not need to have nominated Wadham as your first -choice college. If you name a college of preference other than Wadham you will still automatically be considered for the scholarship, provided that you have indicated that you are happy to be transferred to an alternative college in order to secure funding. Following the January 2016 deadline, the Law Faculty will nominate a shortlist of three candidates, with Wadham making the final selection.
Peter Carter Taught Graduate Scholarship in Law
Who can apply? Any applicant for the BCL or Magister Juris (MJur).
Money available: The Peter Carter Taught Graduate Scholarship in Law is worth £12,500.
Application Details: The Peter Carter Law Scholarship is made available through the generosity of the PBC Trust, and the Faculty of Law, to commemorate the contributions over many years of the late Peter Carter QC to the Law Faculty and to Wadham. The Taught Graduate Scholarship in Law is available to graduate students of exceptional academic merit embarking on the BCL or MJur at Wadham College and is available to law graduates of any university.
If you wish to be considered for this scholarship you should submit your application for the BCL or MJur to the Faculty of Law in the ordinary way by the January 2016 deadline: there is no separate scholarship application process, and you do not need to have nominated Wadham as your first-choice college. Following the January 2016 deadline, a Faculty panel will nominate a recipient for the scholarship, which will be conditional on you taking up the offer of a college place at Wadham. If you have not applied to Wadham, and have indicated on your application form that you do not wish to have your college preference changed in order to take up an offer of funding, then you will not be considered for this scholarship.
The scholarship can be used to defray in part University fees, College fees and/or maintenance of the Scholar during their period of study. Please note that the scholarship will not cover all of the University fees, and the selected candidate, like all other applicants offered places in the College, will be required to demonstrate to the College that he or she has sufficient funds to cover the additional costs.
