Clan Henderson Society
YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP: seeks to value ++and preserve Scottish heritage by learning the traditional Celtic Arts, engaging in HighlandSports, and studying Celtic Culture. Recognizing there are costs involved in lessons, acquiring instruments and equipment, costumes/uniforms as well as competition fees and travel expenses, CHS wants to assist our member applicants and their families with these costs in the form of an annual scholarship program. The amount of each scholarship is determined annually by the Youth Scholarship Committee. ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS are reserved for students in college, graduate school or other advanced studies who are majoring in Celtic Arts or Celtic studies. CELTIC ARTS SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded to students who are studying Scottish traditional arts like bagpiping, drumming, highland dance, fiddling, Celtic harp, etc. HIGHLAND SPORTS SCHOLARSHIPS are intended for older youth who are learning to participate in athletic events featured in the Highland Games like Caber Toss, Hammer Throw, Shot Put, Sheaf Toss, etc.
YOUTH SCHOLARSHIPS are a membership-only benefit. You, your parents, or your grandparents must be an active member of Clan Henderson. Applicants must be under the age of 26 on December 31 of the year they apply. There is no minimum age, but the applicant must show evidence of dedication, talent, and progress appropriate to their age to win.
