Scholarship Information

The mission of the St. Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh is to preserve and promote Scottish heritage and traditions through educational, philanthropic and social endeavors, primarily in the Greater Pittsburgh area. A major part of our strategy is to offer financial assistance through scholarships in the Scottish arts and traditions. These are awarded to people who are seriously studying, who have a need, and who demonstrate a willingness to develop and share Scottish heritage in the community.

Our scholarships are open to all people residing in the Greater Pittsburgh area who are actively practicing any Scottish traditions. Anyone wishing to be considered for scholarship money must complete the application form via the link below. If the applicant is taking lessons from an instructor, we would like to get feedback from that teacher as well via the Teacher Recommendation link below. A talented beginner will be considered equally with a more experienced student. Having received a scholarship in the past should not deter the applicant from applying again. It should be noted that financial assistance for costumes, supplies, and/or musical instruments will be considered along with seeking financial assistance for instruction or workshop attendance.

This year’s applications deadline has passed and winners will be contacted. If you have questions, please contact Scholarship Committee Chairperson Dale McLeod at
