University of Bristol Denise Coates Foundation Bursary

The University of Bristol is pleased to announce the Denise Coates Foundation Bursary for 2017-18. The Denise Coates Foundation Bursary supports first-year undergraduate students studying single honours Law from low income backgrounds. The Co-Founder and Trustee of the Denise Coates Foundation, John Coates, studied law at the University of Bristol. The primary purpose of the Foundation is to make a positive difference to people’s lives and these bursaries are one such way of doing that.

“Study at Bristol provides life-long opportunities. Students graduate as self-motivated, critical thinkers – skills that every employer is looking for. For under-represented students, the transition from school to academia can be particularly tough. With the Denise Coates Foundation bursaries we hope to support students in this character building year and help them lay foundations for future success.” (John Coates October 2015)
