Funding Opportunities

Hardship Grants from the Squire Fund

The Faculty received an endowment from the estate of Rebecca Flower Squire who died in 1898. The income from the trust fund is used to provide Scholarships in Law, and also to make grants of small amounts on grounds of financial hardship to current members of the University who are already studying Law.

The regulations for both scholarships and grants require:

  1. that the applicant is a British Citizen or a citizen of a country of the Commonwealth; and
  2. that the applicant has ‘declared in writing the sincere intention of qualifying as a barrister or a solicitor or as a teacher of law, and of practising or teaching law accordingly’.

Please see the Faculty website for details of more funding opportunities.

The Cambridge Bursary Scheme is available for undergraduate students. There are also a number of other funds which are run by Colleges and the University. College Admissions Tutors can provide further information.
