ST. ANDREWS SOCIETY SCHOLARSHIP
Since 1956, its bicentennial year, the St. Andrew's Society of the State of New York has supported one-year scholarships for students to study in Scotland. They have granted over 120 scholarships in that time. Scholarships may be held at any of the Scottish universities, including the "new" universities, and any field of study is appropriate. It is preferred that applicants not have previously studied in the United Kingdom.
Schools within 250 miles of New York State are eligible to nominate one candidate each for this award. Preliminary applications are solicited on copies of the final application form in mid-November. The nominee is selected from among these, occasionally with the help of a personal interview with the Graduate Studies Advisor, and assisted in preparing the final application, which is submitted in mid-December. In addition to filling out the application form and responding briefly to two questions about your plans for Scotland, you will need three letters of recommendation, along with an institutional endorsement signed by Father McFarland, and certification from the financial aid office that you would need assistance to carry out graduate study in Scotland.
Six finalists are invited for an interview in February or March.
Criteria for selecting them include significant reasons for studying in
Scotland, academic achievement, extracurricular activities, financial
need, statement of personal objectives, proof of US citizenship, and some
Scottish descent. If you are selected as a finalist, you will be
required to provide proof that you have applied to your chosen university,
because otherwise there would not be time to process your application.
Shortly after the interview luncheon, awards are announced for two of
