Initiated by the Society at its 200th anniversary in 1956, the Saint Andrews’s Society Scholarship Program has consistently attracted the top students from the most competitive institutions of learning.

Each scholarship currently provides funds of $35,000 to be used initially against tuition, then board, transportation and other expenses.
