Annual Scholarship

2019 Family of Bruce International Scholarship Application Due date is December 31, 2019 but recommended to send by November 30

In May 2017, FOBII was proud to announce to the membership of Family of Bruce International, Inc, the establishment of a scholarship as part of the charitable operations of our organization. For quite some time, our Board has been in discussion concerning the wider dissemination of the funds we have at hand which are designated for charitable work. This is, of course, in line with our IRS identification as a 501c3 not for profit charitable organization. The 1st scholarship was awarded in 2017 to Mackenzie Bruce who is a graduate student in architecture at the University of Michigan. In 2018, two scholarships were awarded, one to MacKenzie Hafer who is an Anthropology student at the University of West Georgia, and another to Kyle Bruce Crow who is studying Veterinarian Medicine and Surgery at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. Here is what you all should know about this scholarship. The scholarship will be granted not more than once in a calendar year, and for the third year (2019) will be in the amount of $1,000. The scholarship will be open only to members of Family of Bruce International, which, because all of our memberships are family memberships, include both the primary member, spouse, and all children under the age of 18. Former family members now 18 years of age and older must have their own membership in order to make application. Applicants are required to submit a proposal for use of the funds in writing (not in an email), and with all significant details, to the FOBII Board, who, acting as a committee of the whole, will make the final decision as to who the successful applicant will be. Application in writing must be made by December 31, 2019. Scholarship funds may be used only for tuition and other institutional fees of an accredited college, university, or other established and trusted academic/cultural organization of high standing. Priority will be given to those applicants whose study is focused on, or is clearly linked with, Scottish history and culture, and particularly with the history and culture of the Family of Bruce. Other academic ventures may also be considered. Regular reports to the FOBII Board, on the progress of their study will be required of successful applicants.

Requirements Summary:

  • Former family members, now 18 years of age and older, must have their own membership in order to make application.
  • Application/proposal must be made in writing (no email) and received no later than December 31, 2019, but it is recommended to get it in by November 30, 2019. Any application received after December 31 will not be considered.
