The Society has a long history of conducting charitable work directed towards the Scottish community within the city of Montreal and occasionally provides grants to cultural and community organizations that promote Scottish culture and carry out related activities.
The St Andrew’s Society of Montreal was organised in 1835, and supports the Scottish presence in Montreal, as well as Quebec and Canada. Its principal purpose is to assist persons of Scottish birth or descent who are in need, to grant educational aid to qualified students of Scottish ancestry by means of bursaries and scholarships and to provide a limited number of grants to cultural and community organisations that promote Scottish culture and carry out related activities. These grants generally focus on greater Montreal and exceptionally are made in support of projects of provincial or national interest and reach.
Applications are evaluated on their merits and ranked according to other applications received. There are constraints to the amount awarded in any given year, and the success of the application will depend on which other applications are under consideration at the same time. Decisions on the distribution of grants are made by the Council of the St Andrew’s Society. Applicants are contacted once a decision has been reached.
Applicants have two ways to apply for funding:
Applications should forwarded to:
Executive Director, St Andrew’s Society of Montreal,
