Special Announcement – Law and Development Training Programme 2019 – A4ID Partial Scholarships

A4ID is pleased to announce a partial scholarship for self-funded applicants.

We have a number of scholarship places still available – please get in touch with the A4ID team with your application by 9.00am 14 December 2018 if you would like to apply.

See further details of the Law and Development Training Programme HERE.

We have listened to a number of potential self-funded applicants, who are excellent candidates, but are unable to attend the Programme for reasons of costs. Our Law & Development training programme is to equip the next generation of development-minded lawyers, and has set many lawyers on a new career path. A4ID is proud to be a part of this process.

For this reason we are pleased to announce the opportunity for a partial scholarship for self-funded applicants.  Successful candidates will have the Programme fee reduced from the self-funded rate of £900 to the student rate of £600. Scholarship recipients will also be awarded one year’s free membership to A4ID, providing the opportunity to participate in our renowned global pro bono projects.

This scholarship will be limited to up to 7 successful candidates.

The conditions of the scholarship are as follows:

  • You must self-fund the course, and not be funded by your employer. Candidates partially funded by their employer may be considered, but any scholarship would be pro-rata, and would be in lower priority to solely self-funded applicants.
  • You must commit to attending the full Programme and pay the student rate– the dates are available here. Participants may miss one module, which they can catch up when the course is run next.

To be considered, email Thomas Istasse, Learning and Development Officer at [email protected] with the following information:

  • CV (2 pages maximum)
  • 1 page letter of intent that must demonstrate the following:
    • A strong case for why you are interested in this Programme and how it would benefit your professional development.
    • A proven commitment to international development or human rights, either in employment or in a volunteer capacity.
    • A clear plan for what specific activities, volunteer or otherwise, you intend to undertake in international development or human rights after the Programme.
    • An explanation for why the full rate would otherwise prevent you from attending
    • A commitment to attending the full course on the course dates.

Applications must be received by 9:00am Friday 14 December 2018. Candidates will be notified by Wednesday 18 December 2018, and must register and pay for the Programme within 7 days of notification.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Thomas Istasse at [email protected].

We look forward to your applications.
