GDL/CPE and BPTC scholarship statistics

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Sub-Treasurer of the Inner Temple,

Please could you release the following data under the Freedom of Information Act:

For GDL/CPE scholarships:
- the total sum of money available each year which the inn might award
- the total sum of money which the inn in fact awarded in the most recent year for which full data* is available (noting which year this is)
- the highest number of scholarship awards the inn might make
- the actual number of awards the inn made in the most recent year for which full data* is available (noting which year this is)
- the number of applicants the inn received for these scholarships in the most recent year for which full data* is available (noting which year this is)
- information on any significant changes the inn is expecting to happen which would affect these figures in the years to come.

*full data to include that requested in other points - so if, for example, the information on total funds awarded was available for 2008-09 and 2009-10, but the information on total number of awards made was only available for 2008-09, please provide the data for 2008-09 in all cases.

For BPTC scholarships:
- the same data

NB, if data is not available for the years in which the BPTC has been running, please provide equivalent data for BVC scholarships.

Please only include, in all cases, scholarships which would be generally available (so NOT any for which the applicant must fulfil additional criteria, such as being an alumnus of a particular institution, or having a disability, etc).

Yours faithfully,

Giles Fleming

Subtreasurer, Sub-Treasurer of the Inner Temple

Dear Mr Fleming.

Thank you for your request on the Inn's scholarship distributions.

We will reply early in the New Year.

You are not obliged to do so, but it is helpful for us to know why you
require this information for two reasons, first it helps us to reply in
the most helpful way and second it informs us generally on the
information we publish and put in the public domain.

Yours sincerely.

Patrick Maddams
Sub-Treasurer

Dear Mr Maddams,

Thank you very much for your most helpful response.

As to why I asked, it's simply that I'm thinking of joining an Inn and have found that much of the data available on Inn websites isn't really comparable. I'm thinking of things like one Inn giving the total number of applications for awards, and another giving the total number of new student members in a year, for instance - both give a sense of the competition for awards, but not in a way that helps to distinguish between the Inns.

Thanks again for your help
Yours sincerely

Giles Fleming

Good luck with your search and selection of the right Inn for you.
