Tynybedw Law Bursary 2020-21
King’s will be offering one new annual Tynybedw Law Bursary worth £25,000 each to Welsh-domiciled students successfully applying for entry in September 2020.
What is the Tynybedw Law Bursary?
The Tynybedw Law Bursary was founded by Mr Geraint Hughes, a law alumnus of King’s College London and partner at Clifford Chance. As someone who values his time studying at King's, Mr Hughes would like support certain students at King’s, enabling them to begin their own legal careers.
This bursary will provide selected students with sufficient funding to cover a significant proportion of the cost of attending university and is aimed at giving the recipients the opportunity to study law at King's.
The scholarships are designed to offer assistance to candidates who are in need of extra financial support to undertake their degree.
Scholarships will therefore be awarded on the basis of:
- the strength of candidates’ personal statement, and
- the applicant’s financial assessment.
Applications are open to Welsh-domiciled applicants who meet the eligibility criteria listed below.
The scholarship is worth £25,000 , payable over 3 years.
This means that you will receive £8,000 in your 1st and 2nd years and £9,000 in your 3rd and final year (repeat years or breaks in study will not be funded), and will be dependent upon continued satisfactory academic progress and attendance. The scholarship will be made available as a cash bursary.

- you should be undertaking your first undergraduate degree;
