Overview:

This merit-based Scholarship promotes postgraduate exchanges between American and Scottish universities in any field of study.

Each year, the St Andrew’s Society for the State of New York awards two scholarships to Scottish students wishing to study for a postgraduate Masters in the United States.

The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland administers this scholarship programme for students in the UK who wish to apply for graduate study in the United States. Successful candidates are expected to be the highest caliber, both academically and in their wider personal interests.
