Programme Overview: 

The SAIC MSc Scholarship Programme aimed to increase accessibility to Master of Science (MSc) degrees in aquaculture-related fields via fully funded scholarships for eligible students enrolled at specific Scottish universities. Browse the list below.

  • Research Project Focus: Scholarship recipients were required to focus their MSc research project on a topic relevant to challenges and opportunities faced by the Scottish aquaculture industry. This ensured the programme directly addressed industry needs.
  • Wrap-around support: a few lines on the other stuff we offered the MSc students. For example - insights on current industry challenges, networking opportunities with industry and academia, conference attendance and career-related skills training, such as confident networking and communication.
