As a tribute to her distinguished contribution to construction law, and to the work of the Society of Construction Law, the Society has decided to offer a scholarship bearing Frances Paterson’s name. The purpose of the scholarship is to support doctoral research in the field of constructionlaw at a UK university. The Scholarship is intended to assist with the payment of university fees for the duration of a Doctorate and has therefore been set at 50% of the annual course fee, up to a maximum of £2,500 per year (£1,250 for a part-time candidate). The intention is that the award will be renewed annually, based on confirmation of satisfactory progress being provided by the holder’s supervisor. Subject to this, it is intended that the award will be for 3 years for a full-time candidate and for 4 years for a part-time candidate.
