Scholarship Money

We provide scholarship money to those studying music or dance in furtherance of the Scottish culture. Scottish dancing, music and bagpipes are deeply rooted in Scottish culture and history and has evolved over time into several distinct styles. For dance, these include Highland dancing, ceilidh dancing, and Scottish country dancing.

We travel together to connect with our roots. Clan Irwin Association sponsors periodic tours of Scotland (and sometimes Ireland) that always feature stops at Drum Castle and Bonshaw Tower. These tours are usually every 2 - 3 years, although special occasions may call for more frequent tours. A recent tour focused on the 700th anniversary celebration of Drum Castle being granted to Clan Irvine in 1323. We were feted at a formal Regimental style dinner in the dining room at Drum Castle. Entertainment was provided by Pipers from the Gordon Highlanders Association Drums and Pipes.

Burns Night Suppers

Throughout the world on Burns Night Scots eat a traditional Burns supper. This is an evening event that celebrates Robert Burns' life and work. Also known as Rabbie Burns, Robert was born on January 25, 1759, and his birthday, known as Burns Night, is celebrated with traditional Scottish food, music, poetry, and toasts.Perhaps you are interested in hosting a Burns Night Supper for friends and members near you. Alternatively, you may wish to join your local St Andrews or other Scottish Society and participate in their Burns Night. Either way, Clan Irwin encourages you to enjoy this traditional Scottish event.
