About the Society

The Glasgow Perthshire Charitable Society, generally referred to today as the "Glasgow Perthshire", was founded in 1835. The Society's original aim was to provide financial assistance to those from Perthshire who had moved to Glasgow seeking employment and had fallen on hard times. Today, the Society primarily provides bursaries to students from Perthshire attending one of Glasgow's universities or colleges, but also grants to senior citizens from Perthshire living in Glasgow, and assistance to those meeting the Society's criteria.
