In Theodore’s own words
The Saltire Scholarship offers the international community the opportunity to experience and partake in Scotland’s system of higher education. The award has been of great financial assistance in my pursuit to study at Europe’s oldest and pre-eminent institution pertaining to Terrorism Studies, The Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at the University of St. Andrews. Through the generosity of both the Scottish Government and the University of St. Andrews, I have been able to continue studying a topic I am truly passionate about under the tutelage of a highly accomplished and esteemed faculty.
