Programme Overview

Our ambition at the University of St Andrews is to provide a comprehensive and world-class supported programme for our performance golfers.

We deliver our performance support through our 600 Club Scholarships, these scholarships will provide all the resources needed for players to take their games to the next level whilst studying in St Andrews.

We are now receiving applications for the 2021-22 academic year, please see the relevant documents below which detail what the scholarships provide and the criteria we will be looking at when assessing applicants. The scholarships are aimed at players who are already competing at a high level and who believe they have the necessary attributes to be part of a performance golf programme whilst studying for their degree in St Andrews.

600 Club Scholars will represent the university in tournament golf around the world. They compete domestically within the BUCS calendar and across Europe as part of the R&A Elite Student Tour. Additional competitive opportunities include invites to high-level tournaments in both North & South America.

The scholarships are supported and funded through our 600 Club, which is our community of donors and supporters around the world, in addition to Saints Sport, the R&A and the St Andrews Links Trust.

The Closing Date for 2021-22 600 Club Scholarship Applications is June 30th 2021.
