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 announcement and links have already been provided to known teachers and prior year’s applicants. We hope that wide circulation of this application through instructors, and other interested individuals will allow it to reach people who are interested and deserving of help in furthering their studies. Applications and teacher recommendation forms must be received by April 16, 2024.

We would prefer to receive applications and recommendations electronically via the above links; however, if you need a Word file, contact Scholarship Committee Chairperson Dale McLeod at
