The Scottish American Society of South Florida [SASSF] Scholarship Program awards are for either scholastic or cultural endeavors.
Academic grants are for the scholastic discipline in the secondary and above levels and are based on a research paper or essay, relative to Scottish history. Academic scholarship awardees are required to perform 10 hours of community service for the Society within the year following the award, e.g. May 2023 - May 2024.
Cultural, or artistic grants are based on the individuals demonstrated ability of talent, such as piping, drumming, fiddling, or dancing as they may pertain to Scotland. These are usually for an intensified workshop and of short duration from a few weeks to a month.
The amount and number of scholarships awarded vary by year based on funds raised via the Annual Scottish Festival & Highland Games and other SASSF events.
The 2022 scholarship application cycle has already passed. The 2023 SASSF scholarship application deadline is due April 16, 2023. Awards will be decided by May 15, 2023. Please see the respective scholarship applications for complete details.
