The main objects of the Society are to (1) to provide financial assistance to those of the Clan and the Septs recognised by the Society who are in need, and (2) to further the education of members of the Clan and Septs who show promise.
Those in the Clan and the recognised Septs that receive assistance from the Society do not have to be members of the Society.
The Society can provide financial assistance to those of the Clan and Septs who are in financial hardship. Details are required in support of an application as detailed in the application form.
The Society recognises the importance of giving judicious assistance in education and vocational training.
The Society will consider giving an Educational Grant when the applicant is suffering financial hardship.
To qualify for a Grant, university and college students need to confirm that they have been accepted for a course and will require to give an update on progress in their course during each of the years that a Grant is given. Those seeking a Grant while on an apprenticeship, or to help buy equipment for a vocational course, will require to provide details of the apprenticeship or the course they are following.
Educational grant applications are normally considered at the Directors' meetings in February, June and October. An applicant for an Educational Grant should have a completed application form in to the Society by the end of the previous month so that it can be processed in time for the appropriate Directors' meeting, but if an applicant receives confirmation that he or she has been awarded a place in a tertiary education course less than a month before a meeting of Directors he or she should immediately lodge his or her application with the Society.
