BPTC Residential Scholarships

If shortlisted for a BPTC Scholarship interview, you will have the opportunity to apply for a Residential Scholarship and/or Victoria League Scholarship.

At the close of the BPTC scholarship interviews (around late February or early March), the interviewing panel will agree its list of candidates to receive awards. From that list of scholars a separate panel will draw a shortlist of Residential Scholarship and Victoria League Scholarship applicants to be interviewed. 

If applying for a Residential Scholarship and Victoria League Scholarship, you will first be considered for a Residential Scholarship. If you are not recommended for a Residential Scholarship, the Scholarships Committee will then consider your application for a Victoria League Scholarship. 

Residential Scholarship

The Inn is a collegiate environment and wishes for its students to live and work within it. To this end, in 2012, the Inn added to its scholarship and award portfolio a flat located in South Square of the Gray’s Inn estate. The Scholars Flat contains four bedrooms named Coney Court, Chapel Court, Holborn Court and Portpool. 

The decision to offer a Residential Scholarship will be based on both the applicant’s need and commitment to participate in the life of the Inn. The flat is available to four BPTC scholars.

The four successful residential scholars will share the flat for a period of 11 months beginning 1 September and ending 31 July.

Victoria League Scholarship

In 2017 the Inn added to its scholarship and award portfolio two further accommodation scholarships. The accommodation is not based within the Inn, but at the Victoria League Student House. The student house is dormitory living, including common rooms and a lovely communal garden. It takes about 30 minutes on the Central Line from the Inn to the Victoria League House. 

The decision to offer a Victoria League Scholarship will be based on both the applicant’s need and commitment to participate in the life of the Inn. Rooms will be offered to two BPTC scholars. 

The two successful Victoria League Scholars will be housed for a period of 11 months beginning 1 September and ending 31 July.
