The Charles Mackie Scholarship

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology is offering the Charles Mackie Scholarship to students progressing from Undergraduate to Postgraduate Study within the School, commencing study in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Charles Mackie

This scholarship was introduced in 2019 to mark the 300th anniversary of the appointment of Charles Mackie, Professor of Universal History in 1719. The first such Chair in Scotland and a true polyhistor, Mackie taught a type of ‘world history’ and both his courses as well as his research interests were very broad. Among his pupils was William Robertson, the famous Enlightenment historian, and University Principal, after whom the School’s building is named.
