Who are The Robertson Scholars?
Since 1992, The Robertson Trust has identified and assisted over 1000 high-achieving young Scots who have the ability, but not necessarily the means to get the most out of a university education. At our most recent graduation, 88% of scholars graduated with a classification of 2:1 or above, significantly higher than the 2015/16 national average of 73% (HESA).
There are now over 500 scholars studying across 47 different subjects. As well as receiving a bursary from the Trust, all Robertson scholars participate in Journey to Success, a personal development and training programme designed to build self-confidence, presentation skills and other career-related qualities. As part of this programme, all potential interns have completed employability workshops and are therefore able to provide professional CVs for employers.
