We know from experience that well-rounded achievers become resilient and dynamic lawyers, which is ideal for our clients - and their businesses.

  • A covering letter introducing yourself, your CV and why you should be awarded a Bell Gully Scholarship.

  • An up-to-date CV detailing your academic history and achievements, as well community, cultural, leadership and sporting achievements - all the information that you think makes you​ the high achieving, all rounder that we look for in selecting our scholars.

  • Any written references from school, community leaders and/or employers.

  • An up-to-date academic record.

  • A piece of recent academic work.

  • A recent photo.
