The Foundation is glad to announce the resumption of The Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarship Programme, subject to the Covid-19 pandemic related conditions prevailing at the time of visit to the U.K. The Foundation invites applications for two Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarships to be availed of in the year 2022. The last date for submission of applications is 10 March, 2022.

It has been brought to the notice of the Foundation that certain applications stated to have been submitted by 1st February 2022 have not been registered on the Foundation website, www.knhfoundation.in, due to a temporary technical glitch. With a view to address this concern, the Foundation has extended the date of submission of applications to 10th March 2022. All applicants are requested to apply afresh on the google form available at the Foundation website. Access to the google form would also be provided upon request for the same at email : [email protected].

The Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarship, a joint venture between The Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation and the Pegasus Scholarship Trust, aims to provide young lawyers in India with first-hand experience of the working of the legal system in England and Wales over a period of eight weeks. The scholarship would entail spending three to four weeks each at two different sets of barristers' chambers in London which practice in the scholar's preferred areas of law. These placements would involve opportunities to see advocacy in action, and the scholar would typically be asked to assist with research and/or drafting. The scholar would usually get to visit various institutions such as the Supreme Court, the High Court and the Old Bailey, where the scholar would be looked after by a Judge of that Court for the day.

The scholar would be provided with a stipend to cover living costs and would also be given assistance in securing accommodation in London. The scholarship does not cover any other expenses, such as return flight tickets, visa, travel-related costs and insurance (medical/health, travel). It would be the responsibility of the scholar to meet Covid-19 pandemic related requirements to visit the U.K. The Foundation takes no responsibility should the scholar contract Covid-19 or require medical care.

Applications are invited for two Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarships to be availed of in the year 2022. The applicant should

• be a citizen of India

• be a practising lawyer in India

• should have been in practice for less than seven years on the date of the submission of the application. This requirement is waived for applicants of the Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation Pegasus Scholarship 2020, who should apply afresh.
