This year, the Carnegie Trust received 145 applications for Vacation scholarships from undergraduates in the Scottish universities. Following review of the proposals by a panel of Trustees, 70 projects were awarded funding.

The Vacation Scholarship Scheme is intended for Scottish students undertaking an undergraduate degree course at a Scottish university, who have shown exceptional merit at university, and who would like to devote some portion of the long vacation to undertake a programme of independent research of direct benefit to their academic work.

A full list of the awardholders, together with the titles of the funded projects, can be found here.
