Fee Assistance

Background

Background

onsteps© The University of Aberdeen

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 costs of their tuition fees and is not intended as a substitute to publicly funded schemes. Applicants must demonstrate that their financial circumstances will hinder access to their chosen course of study when making a request for funding to the Carnegie Trust.
