Saltire Scholar Programme

The Saltire Scholar Programme is open to all students in their penultimate year of study at a Scottish university. It is open to students from all degree backgrounds which means that whether you’re studying to be a social worker, a physicist or an accountant, you could gain an internship through the programme if you prove you have the right attitude and ability.

This Opportunity will enable you to:

  • Undertake a project of commercial significance and deliver tangible results to your host company by applying theoretical learning in a professional environment.
  • Experience a different perspective by working in an organisation with a global focus.
  • Engage with all levels of an organisation. Scholars regularly have access to senior management who act as mentors.

By joining Our Community you will:

  • Become part of a Saltire Alumni network of 1500+ members.
  • Engage with Entrepreneurial Scotland’s wider Community and participate in events with Scotland’s business leaders.
  • Scholars are encouraged to fundraise and give back to our Foundation during their internship.
  • As a Saltire Scholar, you are an ambassador for the programme, your university and Scotland.
  • Create lasting and meaningful relationships with your Scholar cohort and Host Company colleagues.
