The Programme

Kira Chan

The Saltire Scholar Programme provides life-changing opportunities. Next summer you could be joining more than 150 Scholars working with some of the world’s most successful firms; from entrepreneurial start-ups to global corporates from Glasgow to San Francisco and Singapore. Thanks to the incredible support from our network of supporters and donors, this exciting opportunity is fully-funded for all Scholars. Read Kira's experience.

Who's it for?

We are looking for ambitious students like you with a passion for Scotland and the skills to make an impact at your host company. We have a diverse range of placement opportunities and host companies so whether you’re studying Anthropology, Physics, Marketing or Computer Programming we can find a placement to suit you.

As a potential Scholar the only criteria you must meet is being a penultimate year undergraduate student at a Scottish university. We recognise that academic merit is not the only way to identify talent. Our straight-forward application process takes a holistic view of every potential Scholar: what are you passionate about?, where do your interests lie?,
what do you want to do in your future? Our application process video explains how to apply and you can also contact your university's careers advisory service for support.Jordan Scheier
