To celebrate the Commonwealth Games coming to Scotland this year, British Council Scotland provided three scholarships to enable gifted students of literature and creative writing from Commonwealth countries to attend the Scottish Universities' International Summer School (SUISS) in July and August 2014.
The summer school offered three courses in Text & Context: British and Irish Literature from 1900 to the Present, and one course in Creative Writing. The literature courses offered extensive examination of theoretical approaches to Modernism, Scottish and Contemporary Literature. The Creative Writing course allowed students to develop their personal writing portfolio.
The British Council Scotland Commonwealth Scholarships provided two 2-week Literature scholarships and one 4-week Creative Writing scholarship for 2014.
