Scotland's first minister Alex Salmond has announced that the Scottish Government will give £60,000 to the Lockerbie Scholarship fund.
The fund pays for students from Lockerbie Academy to spend a year at Syracuse University in America.
The connection between the two institutions was forged less than two years after the Lockerbie bombing which happened 25-years-ago on Saturday.
35 students from Syracuse were killed on board flight Pan Am 103 when it was blown up in the skies above Lockerbie.
