This Scottish Government fund aims to provide our students with support for further opportunities to study overseas, to make more students mobile - enhancing their skills and ultimately making them more employable. It will be part of the Scotland’s Saltire Scholarships programme – providing additional funding for outward mobility to complement that offered to incoming students.
This is is great news and we encourage students and institutions to apply for this funding!
Saltire Scholarships for Outward Mobility will be funded through a competitive process, open to Scotland’s universities, colleges and their student associations.
The aim for 2012/13 fund is to increase the number of students undertaking study or training overseas by funding:
Mobility for individual students (to be described as Saltire Scholars);
Structures within institutions and student associations to support outwardly mobile students
