The Laidlaw Undergraduate Research and Leadership Program provides students with hands-on research experience and leadership training to prepare them to serve as future leaders in their respective fields. The program is made possible by the generous funding of Lord Irvine Laidlaw of Rothiemay through the Laidlaw Foundation.

The Laidlaw Scholarship funds undergraduate students over the course of two consecutive years. Scholars are supported for up to six weeks the first summer, working closely with a faculty mentor of their choosing. The second summer Scholars will take part in an engaging project to build their leadership skills outside of the lab. Laidlaw Scholars also participate in activities to promote their development as leaders, including workshops, trainings, and other more informal mentoring opportunities. Following completion of the program, scholars will receive a transcript notation identifying them as a Laidlaw Scholar.
