Saltire Scholar Sponsors

By becoming a Saltire Scholar sponsor you play a vital role in expanding the opportunities available to the next generation of leaders in Scotland. This in turn ensures the continued success of Saltire programmes in the future.

Who is it For?

The Saltire Scholar programme exists thanks to the participation and financial support of visionary individuals, universities, Trusts and corporates who believe in Scotland's potential and have taken the step to make a change.

We actively seek Saltire Scholar sponsors all year round. If you would like to find out more information about becoming a sponsor, please email us.
