Your bridge to the best pre-graduate talent in Scotland

Host an Intern with the Saltire Scholar Programme

The Saltire Scholar Internship Programme

The Saltire Scholar Internship Programme matches your business with high-potential penultimate and final year undergraduate students (‘Saltire Scholars’ from Scottish universities to enable a 8-12 week internship opportunity for a rising entrepreneurial leader.

We partner with leading organisations across the world to help them transform their organisation with the help of talented and ambitious students who have the latest skills and brightest ideas. Our internship placements can be full-time or part-time in a virtual, in-person or blended format.


Transform your organisation

How does the programme work?

The Saltire Scholar Programme offers a unique opportunity for you to transform your organisation through a hardworking, energetic intern with a fresh perspective.

During the internship, our interns will work on a project of commercial significance that will help your organisation change or grow. These projects can include business development, marketing and PR, finance, STEM roles, research, HR, diversity and inclusion, community development and more.

Our Saltire Scholars come from all different backgrounds and degree subjects. Shortlisted candidates have a minimum of three years of academic experience and are equipped with diverse skill sets and leadership qualities, ready to make an impact on your organisation.
