An annual award of £2,000 partial fee waiver will be made to up to two recipients of a Kinnessburn scholarship. The prize of £2,000 is deducted from the undergraduate degree tuition fee for each year of undergraduate study at the University of St Andrews.   

The Kinnessburn scholarship award is based on the following:

  • A two-minute video task that will be used to shortlist 4 candidates for review by a panel.
  • Kinnessburn scholars will have an Ambassador role for IE whilst they are a UG student at the University of St Andrews and in receipt of the Kinnessburn scholarship funding. This role will require up to 10 hours per semester, and ambassadorial tasks may include:
    • Helping with conversion and orientation activities for foundation offer-holders and entrants. This may involve: sending emails in response to offer-holder queries, participating in webinars to share student experience, attending or supporting in-person orientation events, recording videos about being a student in St Andrews.
    • An invitation to online recruitment events
    • An in-person event in Kinnessburn early each semester (January and September) to connect newly-started students with alumni
    • Focus group work on marketing and conversion ideas.
  • Exit interviews with IE staff to reflect on impact of foundation on UG experience when they graduate from their degree programme.
