Go to external website.


The St. Andrew's Society of the State of New York provides scholarships to two outstanding U.S. students of Scottish descent each year for graduate study in Scotland. Two Scottish students are also selected for study in the U.S. The program was established in 1954 to promote cultural interchange and goodwill between Scotland and the United States.

Award Details

The scholarship provides up to a total of $30,000 to be used first towards tuition; any remaining funds may be used towards board, transportation and other expenses. Duration of study period in Scotland varies by degree program. The scholarship pays one lump sum regardless of duration.


Applicant must...
  • be a U.S. citizen
  • be a current senior undergraduate student
  • live in or attend school within 250 miles of NY state (enrollment at Fordham satisfies this requirement)
  • have some Scottish descent
  • be nominated for the scholarship by Fordham University (through the Office for Prestigious Fellowships)
  • apply independently to graduate programs in Scotland
Additional Notes

Preference is given to applicants who have not previously studied in the United Kingdom.

Only one applicant from each university will be considered each year, so applicants must be nominated by Fordham through the Office for Prestigious Fellowships.
