Description

Since 1960, the Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York has offered two graduate scholarships annually to students of Scottish descent in order to promote cultural interchange and goodwill between Scotland and the United States. Saint Andrew’s Scholarships fund one year of study at any of the universities in Scotland. Brown is invited to nominate one candidate to the national competition.

Eligibility

Selection for an award is based on the applicant’s record of academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, leadership qualifications, financial need, employment, evidence of some Scottish descent, and personal objectives. Scholastic accomplishment is not the sole criterion for selection; all-around achievement, character, and indications of probable further development are also important factors. The Society expects applicants to be fine representatives of the U.S. Applicants should have a clear idea of a project which can be completed in one academic year.

Benefits

A Saint Andrew’s Scholarship provides funds of up to $20,000 to cover tuition and related academic expenses and help defray transportation and living expenses.
