Each year Dundee University is invited to nominate one candidate for an St Andrews Society scholarship for study in the United States. For the academic year 2017-18, the St Andrews Society will offer Scholarships to the total value of $60,000 to enable Scottish graduates to study for a year in the United States. Up to two Scholarships will be offered of not less than $30,000 each.
Preference will be given to candidates who have no previous experience of the United States and for whom a period of study there can be expected to be a life-changing experience.
Selection will be on the basis of an all-round assessment, including personality and academic achievement.
The selection process is administered for the Society by the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, who will appoint the Selection Committee and make recommendations to the Society. Dundee University can nominate on candidate.
Candidates must be Scottish by birth or descent, and will be expected to have current knowledge of Scotland and Scottish current affairs, and of the Scottish tradition generally. The Society expects its scholars to be good ambassadors for Scotland. Candidates must also be:
- either graduates of a Scottish university, or of Oxford or Cambridge, who have completed their first degree course (so as to be qualified to graduate) not earlier than 2016;
- or students of a Scottish university, or of Oxford or Cambridge, who expect to complete their first degree course (so as to be qualified to graduate) in 2017.
An Honours degree is not essential.
