We believe that everyone, no matter their background, should have the means to access a career in the legal sector. That is why we offer financial support to eligible candidates to assist their ambitions to further their law career.
Our financial support is offered to those who meet a number of key criterias throughout our application process. We do not offer cash grants, but instead purchase items on your behalf that will hopefully assist you on the path to becoming a solicitor. The criteria to be a successful applicant to an ASF grant has been carefully designed to ensure that our support goes to those that need it most. Please read our eligibility requirements before starting an application.
Please note it is not possible to start and then return to an incomplete application. We advise that you read all the guidance on this page before starting your online form.
We take data security extremely seriously, so we use enhanced protection throughout the application process.
Applications will be reviewed by Trustees at monthly meetings so expect to receive news on your application up to 45 days after submitting. Any delay in receiving your reference may lead to delays or your application being rejected. We do our best to get back to you before this time frame, but please submit an application in plenty of time if your grant request is time sensitive.
