  • You will be required to provide a statement of motivation in support of your application (not more than 250 words). This should include your reasons for applying for the Scholarship, explaining how you would expect to benefit from the opportunities the award provides, and describing how you think you might contribute to the community while studying at the University of St Andrews. Also include details of academic achievements which you believe would make you a good candidate for this scholarship.
  • Recipients of the scholarship will be expected to engage with our Student Ambassadors Scheme. Work through the scheme is varied, but will likely entail engaging in outreach activities and assisting our Admissions staff with events aimed at prospective students and offer holders to help share your experience of being a student at St Andrews.
  • You will also be required to provide two references; both an academic and personal letter of recommendation (not more than 200 words each).
    • The academic reference could be from a teacher, college counsellor or someone who knows your academic capabilities well.
    • The personal reference should be given from a non-family member who will serve as a personal character reference. For example an academic advisor who is aware of your personal attributes, a current or former employer, senior staff member in an organisation where you have volunteered.
    • If, due to school policy, you are unable to upload your references please upload a document detailing the name and email address of your referee and ask them to email the reference to ugscholarships@st-andrews.ac.uk by the scholarship deadline.

    It is extremely important that you apply to us for funding giving complete and accurate information.
