Stephen Lawrence Trust Scholarships

Undergraduate applicants to the University of Sheffield can apply for an Experience Sheffield Scholarship worth £1,200 for each year of their degree. In addition, there are three Stephen Lawrence Trust Scholarships available for BAME students in the disciplines of Architecture, Journalism and Law. The scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition for the successful candidates' undergraduate courses.

BAME students who meet the eligibility criteria for an Experience Sheffield Scholarship, and who have an offer to study a course in Architecture, Journalism or Law, should complete the standard Experience Sheffield Scholarship application process to be considered for the Stephen Lawrence Trust Scholarships.

The deadline to submit an application is 12pm (midday) Monday 19 April.

Stephen Gale Scholarship Fund

The Stephen Gale Scholarships support Sheffield Law students who want to study abroad as part of their undergraduate degree programme, initially at Chinese University Hong Kong (one of the Law School’s 75 international exchange partners).

The scholarships will be awarded on academic merit – but with particular consideration given to students from under-represented backgrounds.

Applications for these study abroad programmes are extremely competitive, and students from less well-resourced backgrounds are often deterred from applying because of the significant additional costs they need to find.

The Stephen Gale Scholarships will provide a vital source of funding to talented Law students who might otherwise be unable to afford this opportunity, and achieve their full potential - equipping them with crucial international experience and skills to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their peers in the global employment market.

Each Stephen Gale Scholarship will be worth £5,000. And thanks to the generosity of Herbert Smith Freehills, scholarship recipients will also receive an internship with their Hong Kong office during their study abroad year.
