The experience of being one of our Saltire Scholars will be challenging, exhilarating, social, rewarding, fun - and for many it will be life changing. In 2016, 95% of our Scholars said their confidence had increased, 96% said their network had increased and 70% said their career ambitions had changed.
Our programme is diverse to fit the interests of our applicants: from Engineering internships in Houston to Legal internships in Hong Kong, and everything in between. In 2016 we had over 40 degree disciplines represented as part of our cohort which means whether you’re studying to be a social worker, a physicist or a historian you could have the attitude and ability to gain an internship through our programme.
Thanks to the generous support of our host company and university partners we are able to provide this opportunity on a fully-funded basis to our Scholars. We look for Scholars to tangibly give back for the experience they have been given which could be through fundraising or community engagement during their internship.
