Hosts sought for 2021 Summer Internship Scheme

We are once again keen to hear from organisations who may be interested in hosting a Robertson Scholar for our Summer Internship Scheme next year.

The scheme was established in 2014 to help our current 3rd year Robertson Scholars to enhance their C.V and gain valuable experience in the workplace before entering their final year of university.

We are keen to hear from potential hosts from all sectors. Key information includes:

  • We can fund up to 225 hours of work for each scholar and this can be completed full-time or part-time. We are completely flexible and leave it up to the host organisation and scholar to agree the working pattern. It can be part-time or full-time and has no fixed dates we ask that you decide this with the successful candidate
  • Fully funded by TRT based on the Real Living Wage (£9.50 per hour)
  • You would get the chance to interview the interested scholars and choose who you think would be best suited to the role/organisation

If interested in hosting an intern you would be required to complete a job/role description for the potential internship, please email to request the template required for this. Download our flyer for our internship scheme here.

Who are the Robertson scholars?

Since 1992, The Robertson Trust have identified and assisted over 1000 high achieving young Scots who have the ability but not necessarily the means to get the most out of a university education. As well as receiving a 4 year bursary award from The Trust, all Robertson scholars participate in our Journey to Success Programme which is designed as a personal development and training programme which is designed to build self confidence, presentation skills and other career related qualities.
