Term: Academic Year

Partial funding for post-graduate study in Scotland

Funded jointly by the Scottish government and Scottish universities, Saltire Scholarships aim to attract talented international students to Scotland’s best higher education programs. The program offers up to 200 awards annually, each worth £8,000. Awards are applied toward the tuition and fees for one year of study in an undergraduate, master’s degree, or doctoral course of study in Scotland.

Applications will be considered for any field of study available in Scotland, but the program’s priority fields are the creative industries, life sciences, technology, financial services, and renewable and clean energy.

Currently, candidates must be citizens of Canada, China, India, or the U.S. Candidates must also have applied to their intended Scottish university and have received a conditional or unconditional offer of acceptance in order to apply for a Saltire Scholarship.
