For many years the Foundation has given scholarships, in conjunction with the Mackinnon-Macneill Trust, for very highly graded Scottish students whose parents would struggle financially to pay to send them to university. These scholarships are highly competitive and the students have to attain top A's in their Highers or Advanced Highers in scientific (STEM) subjects. As an example of the high standard achieved by these scholars, our 2016 Scholar received a first-class honours degree from Edinburgh University and is now doing her PhD at Oxford University. These Scholars are traditionally invited for a tour of 14 India Street and for a light lunch to meet the JCMF Chair and Secretary and other trustees. The Foundation sends the Scholars a copy of the Maxwell Newsletter.
Further information about the scholarships can be found on the Mackinnon-Macneill Trust website.
