Justin Arbuthnott British Irish Fund

This Scholarship is worth up to £3,500, with one or more awards being available.


This Scholarship is designed to promote the better understanding of Ireland and various complex relationships which link Ireland and the UK.

It is named for Justin Arbuthnott, who was drowned along with three friends one night in July 1989 when their boat capsized off the coast near County Donegal in Ireland.

All four were in their early 20's and were students at Edinburgh University where they had first met and become close friends.


The deadline for this scholarship has now passed and we can accept no further applications for the 2014-2015 academic session.
