"I can't thank the foundation enough for this opportunity" 



"Within the space of a few lessons of my scholarship, I turned my chemistry scores around, from 20% to 70%, that in itself shows the incredible difference Saturday School makes"   



“The classes are great for me as they make me feel relaxed and confident to ask questions, something I can't normally do in school.”



"The goal is to make sure throughout college or university and after the scholars finish their course, they know the path to graduate apprenticeships or to our E placement programme - where we can help them secure placements within industry. So this is a longer play for ScotlandIS to support these scholars in STEM"

Karen Meechan, CEO of ScotlandIS

Our supporters strengthen their public reputation and standing through the impact they make for our learners, in many cases, supporting those who need it most.

Education Funding Partners can often embed their own professional aims, targets or corporate social responsibilities into their support of our scholarship programme, many of our supporters are committed to areas such as:

  • challenging stereotypes in education

  • fulfilling commitments on in-house, local or national policy

The points above are often vital in the selection process for scholarships, and Education Funding Partners can have as much involvement in this process as they wish, identifying the right people who they know will benefit most from being awarded a place on the programme.
