Is your student interested in studying abroad?
The WCU Foundation is proud to invite you to submit your application to be the WCU nominee selected to participate in the competitive award process for one of the St. Andrew’s Society of Philadelphia’s five annual scholarships for one full year of university study in Scotland.
Annually, thirty colleges and universities within the Philadelphia region are invited to submit a candidate to receive a scholarship for study at one of five universities in Scotland. A candidate must be a full time registered student, a U.S. citizen and in the upper quartile of their class. The St. Andrew’s Society Scholarship Committee selects the scholars by screening and interviews in March of each year. If you are the WCU candidate, you will be required to attend this screening at the Union League of Philadelphia on March 22, 2017.
There are five competitive scholarships awarded and each scholar receives an award of $23,000, which covers a majority of their expenses.
For more information and for an application packet on this exciting opportunity, please contact Lauren Deacon, Assistant Director of Development for Scholarships, at Ldeacon@wcufoundation.org or 610-455-6049.
Applications are due by January 9, 2017.
