Multicultural Scholars Programme (MSP)
Initiated in 2005 from the generosity of two anonymous donors to provide academic, financial and careers support for students from under represented ethnic groups in UK Higher Education. Now our scholarships are funded by individuals, businesses and law firms, and there are also parallel MSP programmes in Business and Engineering.
So far, 75 scholars have graduated from Warwick Law School and have gone on to pursue successful careers in Law, and a range of other professions. We currently have 31 MSP scholars in the Law School, and have up to 10 scholarship places available for students starting their Law degree with us in September 2019.
