The object of the Charity is “the relief of financial hardship of pupil barristers at St Pauls Chambers by providing scholarships supplementing pupillage awards”.
Grants are available to qualifying Pupils of St Pauls Chambers. Applications are invited in writing by the trustees, on the Pupil Application Form overleaf. Applications will be considered by the trustees: Simon Bickler QC, Jeremy Barnett and Danielle Graham.
It is anticipated that grants will be made to assist with day to day living expenses where appropriate and also for one-off items of business related expenditure such as computer hardware.
The criteria applied by the trustees will be individual need and financial hardship and so any application should include details of the use to which any grant would be put and the individual circumstances of the applicant. All applications will, of course, be treated in confidence.
The Trustees hope that the award of any grant will enable the applicant to go on and establish a successful career in St Paul’s Chambers and that by providing assistance when times are hard we will help applicants to reach a more stable financial position.
The attached documents provide some insight in to the life and character of Roger. He was always ready and willing to help members of Chambers in whatever way he could.
The Trustees would like to think that if those who receive a grant are ever in a position to be able to offer the same kind of help themselves, they would remember how the Trust has helped them and feel able to make a contribution to its fund to allow its work to continue.
