Scotland’s Saltire Scholarships are an incredible opportunity to study in a country with world-leading universities and a long tradition of academic excellence. Our chosen scholars are people who aspire to become influential leaders in their future careers. They have wide-ranging interests outside their studies and a desire to broaden their personal and academic experience in Scotland.

The scheme offers up to 50 awards, each worth £8000, towards tuition fees for any one year of full-time study on a postgraduate Masters program at any of Scotland’s higher education institutions.

Scholarships are available to citizens of the following countries: Canada, China (including Hong Kong), India, Japan, Pakistan, and the USA.

  • Actively participate in the program’s extra-curricular events. Scholars will participate in a welcome reception and an end of year conference. (Scholars may be excused from attending in the event of exceptional circumstances).

TERMINATION OF SALTIRE SCHOLARSHIPS
  • To maintain the integrity of the Saltire Scholarships and its alumni network, the Scottish Government may remove Saltire Scholars from the program – for example where they do not adhere to the principles of the program; or where their continued membership of participation may cause embarrassment or damage to Scotland’s reputation.
  • At any time, the relevant higher education institution will be able to recommend to the Scottish Government the removal of a Saltire Scholar from the program, for disciplinary or other issues that they consider make that individual’s continued participation in the program inappropriate.
