Four Carnegie Trust scholarships for SBS students
Four SBS students have been successful in receiving vacation study scholarships awarded by the Carnegie Trust.
The students will spend 6-8 weeks of the summer vacation on an independent research project which will have a direct benefit to their academic work. The students are all from the Economics department: Mhairi Love, who will be supervised by Professor Graeme Roy; Sam MacArthur, supervised by Dr Stuart McIntyre; Adam McGeoch, supervised by Guiseppe de Feo; and Elizabeth Harvey, supervised by Grant Allan.
Established in 1901 under a Trust Deed signed by Andrew Carnegie, the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland aims to provide “funds for improving and extending the opportunities for scientific study and research in the Universities of Scotland”.
For over a century, the Trust has funded student fees, scholarships, bursaries and research grants. It operates across all academic disciplines to encourage wider access to higher education and further research in the Scottish universities.
The Vacation Scholarship Scheme is intended for Scottish students undertaking an undergraduate degree course at a Scottish university, who have shown exceptional merit at university, and who would like to devote some portion of the long vacation to undertake a programme of independent research of direct benefit to their academic work.
