Pupillage Support Grants
The Inn runs a support scheme to provide direct financial assistance to pupils in publicly funded areas during the course of their 12-month pupillage in chambers. The funds available are limited. Further details are available here.
Pupillage Hardship Fund
The Middle Temple is able to make awards to members of the Inn who are in pupillage, or who have pupillage arranged, to alleviate cases of serious unexpected hardship. Their purpose is to ensure, so far as possible, that members of the Inn with the potential to succeed at the Bar are not prevented from doing so by some unexpected financial setback. The funds available are limited.
Under the current Covid-19 circumstances, this fund has been subsumed into the Hardship Fund for Students and Pupils. Further details are available here.
Pupillage Interview Travel Expenses
There is a limited fund available to students who are finding the cost of attending pupillage interviews financially challenging. Further details are available here.
Mock Pupillage Interview Scheme
The Inn offers those with imminent Pupillage Interviews the opportunity to practice their interview technique in front of barristers. Further details are available here.
