The Serve Legal Foundation, launched in 2023, has been established to provide financial rewards to support our community in enhancing their future education and work experience. This support may include assistance towards a Master's Degree, exam costs, or other training programs. Please note that it cannot be used toward a 3-year undergraduate degree. The selected recipient will receive a financial bursary to support their further studies with the agreement that they will work for Serve Legal full-time for a minimum of two years following the successful completion of their course.
Hear from our 2023 Recipient
"The Serve Legal Foundation's support has been invaluable as I have begun my postgraduate education this year. With limited financial options for postgraduate students, I faced the challenge of making just £1,500 of my student loan to cover rent, bills, and living expenses after tuition fees were taken. The Serve Legal Foundation's assistance relieved a significant financial burden, enabling me to pursue my Master's in Gender Studies without the pressure of working multiple part-time jobs alongside my course. I've long aspired to pursue a Master's in Gender Studies and feel incredibly grateful that this has been recognised by Serve Legal, despite my academic interests differing from my professional goals. I am honoured to have a 2-year full-time placement with the Serve Legal team after my 2024 graduation. This monetary and career security is allowing me to dedicate myself to my current studies and enjoy this last year of University before I enter the working world – free of financial or employability stress." – Catriona Jolley
