Student opportunity for charities

The University of Glasgow’s Internship Hub is looking to forge links with charities

Charities are being given the opportunity to link up with research students.

The University of Glasgow’s Internship Hub (part of the Careers Service)  is now accepting proposals from charities for its Find a Solution programme 2020/2021.

Over the last decade, the programme has brought together 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 the 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.

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 six funded internships are available.

Applications for the programme are accepted up until the 18 December.
