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.
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.
Many congratulations to the following student for winning the Johnston Memorial Scholarship in 2019:
- Diana Adebimpe - Sutton High School
