The University of Strathclyde is delighted to offer the Fitzsimons Memorial Scholarship for any students undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate degree or diploma taught in the Law School at Strathclyde University. Those are selected will receive the benefit of maximum £3,000.
John Fitzsimons was one of Strathclyde University Law School’s first and most inspirational Lecturers. He taught Criminal Law and Jurisprudence for twenty years before becoming a highly-respected judge (Sheriff). To achieve this, he and his family made considerable sacrifices – not least when he became a mature student at the age of 25. John Fitzsimons believed that talented individuals should have proper access to education on the basis of academic, rather than financial, merit. Through his teaching, encouragement, and his own actions, he inspired generations of Strathclyde students to achieve their potential. He was well aware of the particular barriers which mature students can face.
