Charities given the chance to link up with interns

The Find a Solution programme is now open for entries

Charities are being given the chance to link up with some of the stars of tomorrow.

The University of Glasgow’s Internship Hub (part of the Careers Service) is now accepting proposals from charities for its Find a Solution programme 2021/2022.

Over the last decade, the programme has brought together current students and local third sector organisations to tackle issues of strategic importance through projects that will have a lasting impact.

The programme will provide full funding to support organisations in taking on a University of Glasgow student to work on a project with a strategic or research focus that will help your organisation address challenges and add value long term. Due to the impact of Covid, third sector organisations might need the support of interns to take forward digital strategies but this is just one of many possible projects.

Interns will work part-time up to 20 hours per week and will be paid the living wage.

Funding is available for 80 or 160 hour projects, on a case by case basis and 19 funded internships are available.

Applications for the programme are accepted up until the 17 December 2021.

If you would like to discuss your ideas please contact Sheena McBeth, Internship Hub Manager at the University of Glasgow Careers Service at
