Bursary Scheme


Bird & Bird & Our Bursary Scheme

In 2009, we launched our Bursary Scheme. It seeks to address the financial hurdle that often deters bright people from socially deprived areas of the country from attending University.

Our Bursary Scheme offers:

  • An award paid in instalments over your three years at University to help with living expenses or other expenses incurred whilst studying.
  • A mentoring scheme with our current trainee solicitors to give support and career guidance during your studies.
  • A week's work experience during your first year of University

Hear from two of our future trainees on how the Bursary Scheme has supported them:
