The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland wins again thanks to Sam Heughan. Two lucky eligible Scottish students and one international student, will be awarded a scholarship fund. (along with one eligible script writer) Sam Heughan attended the drama school where he learned his craft in Glasgow, and he wants to give back to the financially struggling college... Here in his own words is the full story.
Heughan said: “I came here many years ago and just recall how difficult it was for me then and, obviously, in the current environment, especially with the pandemic, things are equally or doubly as hard for students.
"I really wanted to create a scholarship that would support young students."
"I learned so much from what was the Royal Scottish Academy (of Music and Drama) - now the conservatoire - just the support that they gave me and even now, the community that they've built.
"It felt really important to be able to give back. I feel very lucky in my career and where I've found myself in the industry. To help, I guess, inspire some of the students as well and to support them because I know that there's so much creativity and talent coming out of this very special building."
