What are our excellence awards?
From its earliest years The Robertson Trust has maintained a strand of support for arts training in Scotland. More recently, we have also provided support for young people in sport through our support for SportsAid Scotland.
This support has focused on the high cost of training young professionals in these areas, recognising that costs for training elite athletes and performers can be considerably higher than for many degree courses.
Over the years a portfolio of awards has been developed that meets our strategic theme of Realising Potential and enables talented young people to contribute at a high level to the cultural and sporting landscape in Scotland and beyond.
In most cases candidates for our Excellence Awards are nominated by the participating organisation.
