The Laidlaw Undergraduate Programme in Research and Leadership is founded thanks to the generous donation from The Rt Hon Lord Laidlaw of Rothiemay, an honorary graduate of the University of St Andrews. This exciting programme is aimed at equipping students with the skills and values to become future leaders in their chosen occupations beyond University. Scholars will design, pursue and report on a research question and will work on this piece of research with an academic in their chosen School. Scholars will also complete several intensive, bespoke leadership courses and other activities.

Further information about the Scholarship and current students can be found on the Laidlaw Scholarships website.
