Clan Baird Society Worldwide/Clan Baird Society Scotland SCIO
The Baird Fire Scholarship is a program that helps foster and cared-for children around the world. The Baird Fire Scholarship is designed to help foster children or any children in various care situations who will need a base for launching into the university or working world when they finish secondary school. It is a stock portfolio plan that awards children a weekly allowance for doing well in school and acting within the three precepts of the Baird Fire scholar. A savings/investment account will be set up for each child in the program, and monthly installments will be added, according to how well the child did in school during that month.
The student will be able to access the funds for setting up in life after secondary school.
Applicants must be members of the Clan BAIRD Society Worldwide. Scholarship monies are to be used to advance the preservation of Scottish heritage and culture, and to promote the objectives of the Clan BAIRD Society Worldwide.
