TCD law student chosen for scholarship

Along with Trinity College Dublin, Matheson has named second-year TCD law student Kariba Dawson as the winner of the Cara Scholarship, which honours late Matheson partner and TCD alumni, Cara O’Hagan.

The scholarship is open to TCD 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.


Dawson will get a €5,000 bursary, a mentor, and an internship spot at the firm, as well as access to its online learning platform.
