We sponsor a scholarship program for qualified high school seniors in Sarasota and Manatee Counties and Lemon Bay High School. 
The St. Andrew Scottish Society Scholarship Fund, Inc. is a 501 C 3 charitable organization.

Since awarding the first scholarship for $500, the program has made awards every year, now totaling 107 scholarships ($118,000) (Detailed History). Scholarship applications are disseminated to the public and charter students through the county public school systems. The competing students submit proof of their Scottish heritage or Scottish activities, carry an unweighted minimum GPA of 3.5, and provide an essay.

Scholarship Chairpersons for 2018 are Linda Prowten and Bert Mitchell.
"Here's A Health To Them That's Awa"
by Robert Burns
Here is freedom to them that would read,
Here is to freedom to them that would write!
There is none ever feared that the truth should be heard
But they whom the truth would indict!
