Outgoing Scholarships are available to tenants or employed barristers of each of the Inns up to five years' practice as a barrister (not including pupillage). Scholarships usually start in July and last for three months, but arrangements are necessarily dependent on what is suitable to the host firm. It should be stressed that, whilst offering opportunities for travel within the country to be visited, a Pegasus Scholarship should not be regarded as a holiday. Pegasus scholars are expected by their host firm to play a full part in the practice of the firm. The experience is unlikely to be mutually worthwhile unless the scholar throws themself wholeheartedly into the work.
Applications for 2024 placements will open at 1pm on Monday 2 October 2023, with a deadline of 1pm on Friday 1 December 2023.
