The Laidlaw Scholars Leadership & Research Programme

Eligibility & How to Apply

Eligibility Criteria

We seek passionate undergraduate students with a burning desire to make a difference, a commitment to ethical leadership, and an openness to challenges, learning, and personal growth. 

Typically, the programme is open to first-year students in 3-year programmes, or first and second-year students in 4+ year programmes, although specific eligibility may vary across our partner universities.

We also require all Laidlaw Scholars to be able and willing to fully engage with and complete all programme elements. While we are committed to providing reasonable accommodations to support your participation, these are intended to facilitate full engagement, not to excuse students from programme components.

We strongly encourage students from all academic and personal backgrounds to apply – your unique perspectives are invaluable to our vibrant community of Laidlaw Scholars!
