We at ESU Scotland were very excited at being given the opportunity to host the last World Members’ Conference in Edinburgh in September 2008. Over 250 delegates from 31 countries attended.

The Thyne Scholarship, named after its founder William Tyne, is the most prestigious of the scholarships awarded over the years by ESU Scotland. It enabled Scots of numerous professions to travel to a country or countries of their choice to study and research their own particular vocation.

In delivering a fresh insight into how professions in other countries tackle their problems, the hope was that this knowledge would benefit not only the individual scholar, but also Scotland. Each year a different theme was selected and scholars had the opportunity to explore and develop a better understanding of their chosen field or profession, and to suggest practical ways in which lessons learned could be applied to that sector in Scotland.
