Support Us

The Carnegie Trust is a charity registered in Scotland and relies on voluntary contributions to support many aspects of its work. Contributions include the repayment of tuition fees, gifts or legacies.

Your support allows the Trust to continue to enable access to higher education for "the industrious and qualified youth of Scotland". It also contributes to the advancement of research and helps create a future for academic excellence.

If you have received support from the Trust in the past, you can also help us by telling us in what ways our funding schemes have had an impact on your life and or work.
