About the award
The Alistair MacQueen Memorial Grant is an annual award of £1,000, providing financial support to a charitable initiative launched or developed by a UK law school.
At a time when higher education budgets are being put under increasing pressure, the Alistair MacQueen Memorial Grant provides charitable, outreach and pro bono initiatives with a useful cash injection, keeping worthwhile projects afloat.
To be in with a chance of securing the grant for your law school, put together a nomination in the form of a short written proposal. The proposal document need not exceed one side of A4 (approximately 500 words) and should include:
- whether the grant would be used to fund a new initiative or to develop an existing venture
- how the project is or will be set in the wider context of the law school
- an outline of who the project will benefit, eg. current or prospective law students, the local community
- how the money would be spent
Nominations should be emailed to: email@example.com
or posted to: Alistair MacQueen Memorial Grant, Higher Education Law, Oxford University Press,
Great Clarendon Street, Oxford, OX2 6DP
The deadline for submission of nominations for the 2013 award has now passed.
The memorial grant was set up as a tribute to the late Alistair MacQueen, who sadly passed away in 2008.
Alistair MacQueen had a long and distinguished background in legal publishing, founding Blackstone Press in 1988.
Up until his untimely death in 2008, Alistair believed that giving something back to legal education was hugely important. This is demonstrated clearly through the various goodwill initiatives he was instrumental in setting up with law schools across the UK, many of which Oxford University Press took forward when it acquired Blackstone Press in 2001.
