Application for Scholarship

The Catherine McEwan Foundation Scholarship is an exciting opportunity for young people living with Crohn’s or Colitis and in the senior phase of high school to access the highest quality revision and educational support, helping them to maximise their learning and chances of success in SQA courses.

The scholarship is offered through a unique and innovative collaboration between The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, Saturday School Ltd – Scotland’s premier tutoring school – and of course, The Catherine McEwan Foundation.

Being diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) can have a huge impact on young people and in particular, their education. They can often miss out on learning and development opportunities at school due to low attendance or inability to fully concentrate for the entirety of the school day. The Catherine McEwan Foundation Scholarship is providing a solution for those young people who are affected at such a crucial stage in their life.

Scholars should apply for a scholarship via the Application for Scholarship page. All applicants must provide a reference from their IBD Nurse and a Pastoral Care/ Guidance teacher from their school. The wider scholarship team will then review all fully completed applications. If selected, these young people will be given enhanced educational support through a series of learning programmes at Saturday School to maximise their chances of success in SQA exams.

The Scholarship is fully funded, offering young people unlimited access to Saturday School’s highly successful and long-standing portfolio of support:

  • Weekly Lessons
  • Grade Booster Days
  • Weekly Revision Classes
  • Easter Revision Classes
  • Higher or National 5 In a Day intensive exam revision courses

SSL is also an SQA Approved Centre and therefore offers full National Qualifications for adults or school-aged learners. All staff at SSL are fully qualified GTCS-registered teachers who offer enhanced support and expert tuition in their respective subjects.

All students are provided with a wealth of learning materials and stationery for each National 5 or Higher class they attend. This applies to all tutoring classes and full qualification courses.

Constant online support is also offered to all of our students, so the support our tutors provide extends well beyond the Saturday morning class.
