Scholarship to Study in Scotland

Saltire Scholarship

Scotland’s Saltire Scholarships (SSS) is a funding scheme which offers up to 200 international students from the US, Canada, India and China a £2000 fee waiver. This waiver can reduce the cost of tuition fees for any one year of study on an undergraduate, masters, or PhD course. Find out more about Saltire Scholarships.


A range of other scholarships for international students are also available in Scotland, covering all levels all the way from undergraduate to PhD. More information can be found in the Scholarships section of the Study in Scotland website, and applications can be made on the Education UK website.
