The Wardlaw Scholarship scheme was established in 2004 through the generous donations from alumni and friends to provide financial assistance to academically gifted students who would otherwise struggle with the cost of studying at the University of St Andrews.

A number of different Wardlaw scholarships are available each year to new entrants. The value of individual Wardlaw scholarships usually range from £1,000 to £3,000 per year, and most are awarded for the duration of a student’s course.

The Wardlaw scholarships are based on financial need, students should demonstrate a below average household income and a need for funding in their application. EU students should refer to the 'Eligibility and 'How to apply' section below for more information on household income.
