Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York Scholarship is now open for applications. 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.Applications are made to the University in the first instance.

Thereafter the University nominates a candidate to the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, who administer the award scheme.In 2016 a University of Aberdeen student was successful in obtaining one of the awards. 

 

Nationality Eligible: Scottish graduates

Level of Study:  Undergraduate

Institution of Study: University of Aberdeen

Scholarship Offer: total value of $60,000

Duration: 1 year

 

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.

 

Candidates must also be:

  • either graduate of a Scottish university, or of Oxford or Cambridge, who have completed their first-degree course (so as to be qualified to graduate) not earlier than 2017;
  • 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.

An Honours degree is not essential.

 

Application:

Candidates are strongly advised to apply to more than one university. In previous years highly qualified candidates have failed to gain a place at the University of their choice, and have then found it difficult or impossible to find a place elsewhere. Applicants are also advised that the State of New York Scholarship is insufficient to fund a year’s study in the US and that information on other sources of funding is available at www.fundingusstudy.org/
