Law firm Matheson has launched its Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship, in association with Trinity College Dublin (TCD).
The scholarship is open to second-year undergraduate law students in TCD – including students on the Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) or the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE) schemes, mature students, and students who face barriers in third-level education.
It has been renamed the Matheson Cara Scholarship, in honour of the late Matheson partner Cara O’Hagan.
“Cara spearheaded and led many of Matheson’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, and was a mentor and role model who embodied the firm’s values of partnership, respect and diversity,” said Michael Jackson (Matheson’s managing partner, pictured).
Deadline of 22 November
The recipient of the scholarship will receive:
- A place on Matheson’s summer internship programme in June 2022,
- A bursary of €5,000 for each academic year,
- An assigned mentor from Matheson to support them during their university journey, and
- Access to Matheson’s online library and online learning platform.
Applicants are being asked to email a copy of their CV, and a short summary (maximum 1,000 words) of why they believe they should receive the scholarship.
Entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 22 November.
