Scholarship Program

Program Overview

In 1956, Saint Andrew’s Society expanded its mission to include a merit-based scholarship program. Since its inception, the Scholarship Program has awarded nearly 200 graduate-level academic scholarships to promote exchange between American and Scottish universities.

The Society awards four scholarships annually, each valued at $30,000 USD, to support graduate study for one year - two for US students to study in Scotland and two for Scottish students to study in the United States - all of whom are invited to study at a university in their respective areas of study to continue their education. The scholarships are granted for tuition, maintenance and travel. The candidates are of the highest caliber and have varying fields of interest: Law, Finance, Journalism, Education and the Arts.

Scholarship candidates from the United States must be of Scottish descent. The student who qualifies for the Macmillan Scholarship, named after Agnes and Peggy Macmillan, must reside in New England, New York, New Jersey or Pennsylvania

The Macmillan Scholarship

The Agnes and Margaret Macmillan Scholarship is made possible through a grant from the estate of the Society’s first female member, Margaret ‘Peggy Macmillan’. In 2006, Peggy began support of the Scholarship Fund through annual donations made in the memory of her departed sister Agnes. In the ensuing years, Peggy contributed significantly to the fund to establish the Macmillan - St. Andrew's Society Scholarship. Sadly, she passed away in April 2013. In her continued generosity, Peggy thoughtfully remembered the Society in her estate planning; guaranteeing The Macmillan Scholarship in perpetuity. It is now aptly renamed The Agnes and Margaret Macmillan-St. Andrew's Society Scholarship.
