For those of you in New York City, I just came across this information on a Saltire Scholarship Information Session tonight at 8:00 p.m. It’s hosted by the Universities of Strathclyde, Glasgow, St. Andrew’s and Aberdeen and is taking place at Charlie Palmer’s Metrazur (Private Dining Room; 404 Grand Central Terminal New York, NY 10017, Tel: 212-687-4600).
For those of you not in NYC or unable to make the session at the last minute, the Saltire Scholarship, of which I knew nothing about until today, might still be of interest if you’re looking to do graduate work somewhere abroad and want that somewhere to be Scotland:
Fifty scholarships are available to U.S. nationals for graduate study in Scotland. The Saltire Scholarships are aimed at encouraging bright, talented and hardworking individuals to live, work and study in Scotland. £2,000 is available as a one-off award towards the cost of tuition fees for a full time master’s-level course (excluding PhD studies) in a wide range of subject areas. Recipients can choose to study at any of Scotland’s universities and higher education institutions.
Check it out, at Charlie Palmer’s or online.
