NY LIFESTYLES FEATURES THE SOCIETY
GIVE THE GIFT OF MEMBERSHIP
The Society's Board of Managers has approved a unique opportunity for members to bestow a membership on a sibling, child or grandchild, and your spouse, parent or a friend if they are of Scottish birth or lineal descent.
The gift of membership package includes the normal application fee and the first year of dues. For gifts to those from ages 18-34 or over 65 the total cost is $95 per person and for those from ages 35-64 the total cost is $130 per person. Each new member will receive a St. Andrew's Society lapel pin, membership certificate, invitation to a new member reception and a welcome letter from our president.
A very streamlined application can be used for a sibling, child or grandchild. If the gift is for a spouse or other person, please contact the office for a customary application.
SCHOLARSHIP GRANTS INCREASED
We are pleased to announce that Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York (SAS) is raising the amount of its scholarship grants from $30,000 USD to $35,000 USD and is adding a third scholarship to support graduate study in Scotland.The SAS Scholarship Committee and Board of Managers approved the increase of the amount of each scholarship and added one additional scholarship. The increase may not close that gap for those coming here to study or for those who study abroad in Scotland, but will make a substantial contribution to that end.
The Society has been providing scholarship grants to graduates of US universities and colleges for over fifty years and have provided over 200 scholarships not only to US graduates, but also to Scottish students doing graduate work in the United States. All of the candidates demonstrate excellence, commitment, and obvious academic achievement. Many of the SAS scholars have gone on to make significant contributions to their fields of study or to society at large. The SAS Scholarship Committee is hopeful that these increases will encourage many more students to file applications in the coming year.
MADMAN IS A FESTIVAL BESTSELLER!
Excerpt from Nadia Ascencio's "The Furious Madness of Jake Austin Robertson": "To call Jake Austin Robertson’s “Madman” a solo performance is to mislead; it’s a tour de force populated by a vibrant cast of distinct characters who seamlessly emerge, one from the other, through a single conduit who is both skilled and fearless in his delivery...I have not witnessed as powerful a performance in a solo work since John Leguizamo’s masterpiece, “Mambo Mouth.” Mr. Robertson’s brave willingness to share his story is the stuff that true art is made of."
