10 Years of Saltire!

2017 is a special year for us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of running our world-class leadership programmes - the Saltire Scholar Internship Programme, and the Saltire Fellowship Programme.

We're delighted to be celebrating our largest cohort of Saltire Scholars to date - currently there are 165 talented, ambitious students from Scottish universities working with innovative firms around the world, in countries such as the USA, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong and China, as well as throughout the UK. Some of our partner companies for 2017 include Fender Musical Instruments, UNICEF, Liberty Mutual and Michael Kors.

The 2017/18 Saltire Fellowship cohort is soon to be finalised. This year's group is comprised of outstanding individuals from small businesses, large organisations, public and third sector, including 3 participants who are Scots returning home after several years abroad. We hope you will have the opportunity to meet them soon!

To mark our 10th birthday we are celebrating the achievements of 12 stand-out individuals who have gone on to great success after their programme experiences. Read recent entries from Craig StephenCollette Norval and Jim Duffy.

Thank you to all of our supporters and friends around the world who are helping us ensure that 2017 is our biggest and most-impactful year yet.

Best wishes,
The Saltire Programmes Team

Saltire Scholars

Each of our 165 Saltire Scholars will have a unique internship experience which will test their ideas and push them to the edge of their comfort zone.

You can follow the journey of our interns by reading their blog - make sure you set a couple of hours aside for this as they're so inspiring it's hard to read only a few!
