What happens after I submit an application?
In February or early March, the Review Committee generally invites six finalists to lunch in New York City. These finalists are required to provide proof of application to their chosen Scottish graduate program.
What's next? Following the luncheon interviews, the Committee selects two students to receive a scholarship for graduate study in Scotland.

Since 1960, the Saint Andrew's Society of the State of New York has awarded over 120 scholarships for graduate studies in Scotland. The goal of the Society is to promote good will and cultural exchange between the United States and Scotland.
