About the Saint Andrew’s Scholarship for Study in the UK
The Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York provides scholarships to promote cultural interchange and goodwill between Scotland and the United States by offering $30,000 towards tuition, housing, and related fees for graduate school in Scotland. Candidates for the scholarship are senior undergraduate students who will obtain a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in the Spring of 2020 and can demonstrate the significance of studying in Scotland. Candidates should have evidence of Scottish descent and should also possess qualifications which will enable them to be good ambassadors for the United States while in Scotland. An appropriate official, with knowledge of the applicant’s financial status, must certify that assistance would be required for a year of graduate study in Scotland.
