Canadian-Scottish Studies A proud heritage, a vibrant future
The St. Andrew’s Society of Montreal and The McEuen Scholarship Foundation are seeking philanthropic support to create a Chair in Canadian-Scottish Studies at McGill University. This exciting initiative will ensure that the role of the Scots in Montreal, Quebec and Canada will be a focus of academic work for years to come, and that the objectives of the St. Andrew’s Society to promote Scottish traditions and identity and the McEuen Scholarship Foundation’s objective to recognize Canada’s shared history with Scotland will be enhanced and secured.
Some of The Chair’s key responsibilities will be to enrich ties with Scottish academic and cultural institutions. The Chair will undertake new research on Canadian?Scottish heritage, history and culture, create outreach activities that promote education and dialogue on the role of the Scots in Canada, and will train the next generation of Canadian-Scottish scholars.
Most importantly, the Chair will help give Canadian-Scottish studies a new prominence in academia and beyond, and will provide a valuable new avenue through which the St. Andrew’s Society and the McEuen Scholarship Foundation can pursue their missions and objectives.

The Committee is as follows:
