The Adam Smith Foundation scholarship programme is supported by Fife College and was created to support our students – to develop opportunities, open doors and transform lives!
The Foundation does this by awarding scholarships. In fact, it has presented over 1000 scholarships and awarded nearly £500,000 since it was created just over 20 years ago.
Through partnership with businesses, charitable trusts and individual donors the Foundation has developed a Scholarship Programme which provides recognition, a financial award, and in some cases, work experience, internships and trips to support and encourage students to achieve their full potential.
“In this competitive world we all need some extra help getting on to the first rung of the ladder.
“This scholarship programme is a great initiative and allows me to provide students with that much-needed lift and recognition at the beginning of their career.
"I really enjoy being involved, reading the students’ work and meeting them at the awards presentations.
"It’s good to give something back and it’s also a great excuse for me to visit Fife and play a part in supporting the Kingdom’s emerging creative talent.”
