Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland

Description

The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland was created in 1901 by the industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919). Carnegie endowed the trust with a gift of US$10 million. His intention was to secure the financial base of the Universities through support for buildings and facilities and in addition to remove tuition costs as a barrier to entry to Scotland's Universities by "the deserving and qualified youth of that country".

The Trust provides students and staff at Scottish universities with a variety of forms of support, including fee assistance; post-graduate and vacation scholarships; research grants, and project grants.
