The Carnegie Trust Fee Assistance Scheme


The scheme derives from the intention of the Trust Founder, Andrew Carnegie, to;

“render attendance at the Universities of Scotland and the enjoyment of their advantages more available to the deserving and qualified youth of Scotland to whom the payment of fees might act as a barrier.”

The scheme aims to support students who do not receive government funding towards the cost of their tuition fees and is not intended as a substitute to publicly funded schemes.

UHI students are eligible to apply and no restriction is placed on the subject or mode of study. Students can be enrolled on any full-time, part-time or distance learning undergraduate degree course. The course of study must be directly connected with the acquisition of a first degree from a Scottish University. Access courses and those for second first degrees, postgraduate qualifications and sub-degree qualifications cannot be supported.

Applicants must also be of Scottish birth or descent (at least one parent born in Scotland) or must have had at least two years’ education at a secondary school in Scotland.

Applicants must reside in Scotland during the period of the course studied.
