The Queen's University exchange to St Andrews is one of the oldest at Queen's University and also provides a very generous scholarship award for successful candidates from both Queen's University and the University of St Andrews. The Robert Tyre Jones Jr. Scholarships are designed to award all-around excellence in students exchanging between the University of St Andrews and selected Canadian universities (Queen's and the University of Western Ontario). These scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding academic performance to candidates who demonstrate a passion for the pursuit of learning and a commitment to the ongoing life of their university and/or wider community.
The scholarships are valued at $6,000 CDN each and there are 4 positions available for this scholarship and exchange. The Queen's-St Andrews exchange is open to undergraduate students from the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
Since this is a university-wide exchange program, students submit an application using the online Queen's Multifaculty Exchange Application form. The online form will be submitted directly to the International Programs Office. In addition, students are required to submit the following supporting documents to complete the application:
The online application form and all supporting documentation must be submitted to the International Programs Office, B206 Mackintosh-Corry Hall by 11 January 2013 for consideration. Students should include their name and student number on all supporting documents. Incomplete applications will not be put forward for consideration.
Applicants to the University of St Andrews exchange will be forwarded to the appropriate faculty for review and successful candidates will be put forward to the selection committee for consideration. Applicants who meet the minimum requirements for the exchange program and scholarship will be contacted for an interview with the selection committee in the final stage of the application process.
A selection committee composed of university academic staff will adjudicate the applications and will, in cooperation with the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Robert T. Jones, Jr. Scholarship Foundation, select the award winners. Golf skill is not a criterion.
