Scholarship Opportunities

St. Andrews University provides a variety of scholarships in recognition of your skills and talents. These scholarship awards are made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends. Our Scholarship Program is a critical component of this recognition. While some colleges award a one-year scholarship, our awards are renewable and the amount is fixed for four years. This helps families forecast expenses and make financial plans. St. Andrews’ policy is to include all scholarships received in a student’s financial aid package as resources to help meet financial need.
