The dates for those interested in the 2013 auditions are January 25-26 and February 15-16, 2013.

Winners of the awards are expected to participate with the Scot Band during the fall and spring semesters, including the annual Spring Tours. All students who earn scholarships are expected to study privately with the appropriate instructor. Pipers, Dancers, and Drummers are also, as appropriate, expected to assist in the recruitment and training of on-campus instructees. One of the considerations for award selectees will be potential for leadership qualities. Experience with a pipe band, Highland dance organization, or in competition, may be another criterion.
