Transforming lives through inspirational education
Seriously smart. Never ordinary. Always ambitious
Fuelling women in leadership
Creating spaces in which to excel
Promoting thinking to make the world a better place
We invest in the education of the underprivileged and underrepresented in order to break the cycle of poverty, reduce inequality and develop a new generation of leaders.
Transforming Lives Through Inspirational Education
We sponsor the Laidlaw Schools Trust, a multi-academy trust founded to transform the lives of children and communities in the North of England, through inspirational education. Across LST we educate 4500+ students and employ 750+ teachers and support staff.
Developing the Next Generation of Leaders
The Laidlaw Undergraduate Research and Leadership Programme sponsors scholars in 13 leading universities. It is designed to create a new generation of leaders who care about solving intractable problems; who behave with integrity and are determined to make the world a better place.
Fuelling Women in Leadership
We offer scholarships for women at Columbia Business School and London Business School; providing business education and invaluable networks to women who would not otherwise be in a position to benefit from the opportunities a top-class business degree confers.
