Robertson Awarded Scholarship for Postgraduate Study at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
Princeton senior Jake Robertson has been awarded a St. Andrew's Society Scholarship for postgraduate study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He will pursue a master's in classical and contemporary text (acting).
The scholarship, given by the St. Andrew's Society of the State of New York, provides $30,000 each for two Scottish graduate students to study in the United States and two American students of Scottish heritage to study in Scotland. The scholarship stipulates that American applicants have some Scottish background and intend to attend a Scottish university.
In his application, Robertson, who is from Lombard, Illinois, wrote: "My grandfather and I, both fascinated by our Scottish lineage, spent hours together researching our family history, and Scotland has become an indelible part of my identity. The program at RCS is as an opportunity to combine this ancestral connection with the pursuit of my theatrical ambitions."
