The Lord Laidlaw Scholarships

Five Undergraduate Research and Leadership Scholarships are available for current first year students studying in the Faculty of Performance, Visual Arts and Communications (the Schools of Design, FAHACS, Media and Communication, Music and PCI).

Laidlaw Research and Leadership Scholars will receive a total of £6000 for working with researchers in the Faculty on specific projects within the Culture, Society and Innovation (CSI) Hub, a major research initiative across the PVAC Faculty, throughout the summer periods of 2014 and 2015. In addition a small amount of activity, including an ambassadorial role, will be expected during term time (the volume of which will be compatible with full-time study). Scholars will receive £2000 for each of the summer periods of research and an additional £1000 in each of their second and third years of study.

Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis. There is a particular emphasis on evidence of academic potential, suitability for the chosen project and capacity to work in a reliable and professional manner.
