BPTC Awards

Most of the Inner Temple’s Scholarships and Exhibitions are intended to support students during their BPTC year. Of our total scholarship fund for 2018 of £1,786,306 over £1.5 million will be allocated to BPTC awards.

Main BPTC Awards

Award Award Amount
One Peter Taylor Scholarship £22,000
One Stephen Chapman Scholarship £21,000
Five Princess Royal Scholarships £20,000 each
Major Scholarships and Exhibitions: Awards will be made on merit with award levels decided taking into account the successful applicant’s resources and needs. There are not a set number but we would expect to make 90 - 95 of these, for around 100 awards in total. £1,371,931

The Inner Temple will also award a number of Benefators Scholarships. These will be made in conjunction with another BPTC award (i.e. they will be added to a BPTC Exhibition Award). A full list of these awards can be found here
