The Laidlaw scholarship programme in research and leadership

The Laidlaw scholarship programme in research and leadership is an exciting programme that aims to equip students with the skills and values to become leaders in their chosen occupations beyond University.

The programme integrates a two five-week summer research project, undertaken during consecutive summers, where scholars will pursue and report on a research question with a research supervisor from their chosen School, alnogside a comprehensive leadership programme that runs across the academic year.   This includes two intensive, bespoke leadership training sessions run over weekends in March and October 2018.  Scholars will also be awarded a 6 month studying membership of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

Scholars will be supported by a generous stipend of £500 per week up to a maximum of 10 weeks across the two research periods.  The expectation is that scholars will be resident in St Andrews or within a commutable distance during their summer research project as part of the community of Laidlaw scholars.
