Our world-class internship programme prepares university students in their penultimate year of study by undertaking commercially valuable projects in Scotland and all over the world. We enable Scholars to take the next step in their development by providing them with a global perspective, encouraging an entrepreneurial mindset, and growing their confidence through valuable professional work experience. In 2019, we partnered with 83 organisations who hosted 181 Saltire Scholars. This spanned across 11 countries and in 61 different towns and cities.
