Supporting individuals that contribute to the cultural, social or economic wellbeing of Scotland or improve the Scottish environment. No deadlines for applications.
Applicants for SIET grants are as individual as their own personal talents and ambitions.
Most are Scots by birth or formation. They will have already shown they have the potential for excellence in their chosen field. Generally this is evidenced by a good first degree or an equivalent qualification.
Priority is given to postgraduate students working for a higher degree or similar qualification, especially if the course proposed does not qualify or the applicant is not eligible for assistance from public funds (i.e. a Research Council).
That said, academic qualifications alone do not guarantee the kind of excellence they’re searching for.
Those with ambitions involving non-academic activities that marry with the aims of the Trust may be funded.
