Prestigious scholarship for study in the US in 2018-19

Applications are currently open for the Saint Andrew's Society of the State of New York Scholarship (deadline 23 February).

The Society will offer Scholarships to the total value of $60,000 to enable Scottish graduates to study for a year in the United States.In 2016 a University of Aberdeen student was successful in obtaining one of the awards. Applications are made to the University in the first instance and the University then nominates a candidate to the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, who administer the award scheme.

The application deadline is Friday 23 February and at present we have not received any applications. Therefore, we would be very grateful if you could highlight this opportunity to students and recent graduates who are eligible and considering study in the US in 2018/19. The Scholarship will be tenable from September 2018 to May 2019 at a university in the United States within a radius of 250 miles from New York City, or within the area of Washington DC.

Eligibility

Candidates must be Scottish by birth or descent, and will be expected to have current knowledge of Scotland and Scottish current affairs, and of the Scottish tradition generally. The Society expects its scholars to be good ambassadors for Scotland.

  • or students of a Scottish university, or of Oxford or Cambridge, who expect to complete their first degree course (so as to be qualified to graduate) in 2018.
