The Clan Morrison Society of North America (CMSNA) offers scholarships for continuing education in fields of interest to our Scottish heritage.
It is the intention of the society that the awarding of these scholarships shall help to preserve the unique traditions, memories, and skills associated with historical Scotland. As the descendants of Scottish Clans and families, it is our hope that each new generation will keep our shared heritage alive and pass it on in turn to the next generation.
Fields of Study that Are Applicable to the Program
Fields of study that are acceptable to the scholarship program are broadly any field of study that can help to preserve the unique traditions, memories, and skills associated with historical Scotland. The society will consider any and all fields of study but will approve them only if their primary objective is clearly to promote and/or preserve Scottish heritage. Such fields of study include but are not limited to performing arts (piping, drumming, playing on musical instruments of traditional Scottish music, the singing of Scottish songs, Scottish dancing), weaving, kilt making, Scottish athletics, Scottish cooking, woodworking, smithing, the fabrication of traditional Scottish attire and weapons, history, genetics (DNA studies), genealogy of Scots, Scottish archeology, etc.
