In recognition of the benefits of higher education, the Society provides significant funding for two Scottish graduate students to study in the United States and two Scottish-American students to study in Scotland. Initiated by the Society at its 200th anniversary in 1956, the Saint Andrew's Society Scholarship Program has consistently attracted the top students from the most competitive institutions of learning. The Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York has provided over 150 scholarships to promote cultural interchange and goodwill between Scotland and the United States since 1956.
The scholarship provides funds of $20,000 to $30,000 for graduate study in Scotland to be used initially against tuition, then board, transportation and other expenses.
Please note that in addition to the below listed criteria, finalists will have to include a statement from an appropriate official certifying that financial assistance would be required for a year of graduate study.
