This Scholarship was established as a tribute to Lady Johnston, a distinguished lawyer, one of the first women to achieve first class honours in jurisprudence at Oxford University and later Parliamentary Counsel. Betty Johnston gave outstanding service to the GDST, not least through her membership of the Council for 35 years, serving as its Chairman from 1975 – 1991 and President at the time of her death in 1994.
One or two awards will be made annually to a student or students intending to read law at university. The award winner is also offered the opportunity to complete a week’s work experience with the Legal department at the GDST Trust Office in London.
