The John S. Carasik Scholarship Fund is open to US citizens, preferably Clan members. Scholarship recipients would go to Oban, Scotland to assist Museum Staff with the MacDougall Collection at Dunollie House, or to the Isle of Lismore to help with the Lismore Museum. The objective of this scholarship is to preserve clan history and culture while giving volunteers a first hand knowledge of our rich Scottish heritage. Applicants should be 21 years of age or older.
This fund is established in memory of John S. Carasik who was an avid Scottish history fan and an enthusiastic supporter of the preservation of Gylen Castle in his short but fulfilling life. This foundation was formed by descendants of John MacDougall and Isabel McCallum MacDougall to promote and preserve Clan history by allowing US citizens the opportunity to support MacDougall and McCallum causes with an IRS tax deductible advantage.
