The Inn’s scholarships are available to all, irrespective of background, to support students to become barristers. In 2023 Gray’s Inn expects to award 25 to 35 GDL scholarships worth £2,500 to £12,000.

Our GDL Scholarships support students undertaking full or part time law conversion courses. A conversion course is any postgraduate course that qualifies a student to undertake the vocational component of Bar training up completion.

The merit assessment criteria are considered from the following:

  • Academic ability
  • Problem solving
  • Drive and determination
  • Advocacy
  • Motivation to succeed

Applications close Friday 5 May 2023.
