OVERVIEW OF THE LEIGH DAY LLB SCHOLARSHIP

Law and human rights have long been within our priority areas for awarding scholarships. By investing in future members of South Africa’s legal profession we hope to support a new generation of leaders to develop legal systems which are just and equitable. This scholarship is generously supported by Leigh Day & Co, a London law firm specializing in personal injury and human rights law.

Canon Collins Trust invites applications from current 2nd and 3rd year students (going into their 3rd and 4th year in 2024) studying for an LLB at the University of Fort Hare and the University of the Western Cape. We will provide funding for maximum of two years. Awards in 2024 will be R40,000, per academic year. This will be paid into your student account, so initially it will go towards the cost of your fees, and any remaining funds can be used for accommodation, books, or other purposes relevant to your studies.
