A new scholarship programme entitled Pathways for Women in Business has been launched by The Laidlaw Foundation and Trinity College Dublin. In partnership with the Trinity Access Programmes (TAP), these scholarships are intended to help talented and ambitious women whose educational trajectories have been limited. The programme will empower these women to access higher education and to progress to successful careers in business.

The scholarships will enable 30 diverse and exceptional women, from lower socio-economic groups to study in Trinity College Dublin.  As well as strengthening its scholarships for women, TAP will develop, build, and embed initiatives to support female leadership, including skills development programmes and career workshops over a three-year period.

Susanna V. Kempe, CEO of the Laidlaw Foundation and Chair of Laidlaw Schools Trust commented: “This programme extends our successful Women in Business Scholarships at London Business School and Oxford’s Saïd Business School to undergraduates. Trinity’s fantastic track record in addressing educational disadvantage makes them the perfect partner for us as we strive to transform lives through providing world class education and propel more women into leadership roles.”

Lord Laidlaw added: “I have been a strong supporter of Trinity College Dublin for many years. Adding these Scholarships builds on my commitment to the University and the community. I am delighted that we are able to invest in this programme and the futures that it will create.

Provost Linda Doyle commented: “The Pathways for Women in Business programme is a fantastic initiative, providing women with the opportunity to embark on successful business and entrepreneurial careers. By partnering with the Laidlaw Foundation, our Trinity Access Programme will now have an even greater impact in widening third-level participation for under-represented groups. I thank everyone involved in the development of this scholarship programme and I am looking forward to seeing how its participants will benefit in so many ways.”
