Santander is contributing 50% of the funding for the internship with the other 50% being funded by the SME.

Santander Scholarships

Mobility Awards

Santander is committed to encouraging and promoting enterprise at all stages of the business cycle. One area that needs more support is marketing brilliant ideas, which in a good deal of cases are born in the classrooms of many UK campuses. Enterprising undergraduates and graduates in the UK are invited to enter Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards, which offer a top prize to the best idea presented to an expert panel of judges. Previous winners have already launched their ventures into the market with great success.

The awards aim to support and encourage university students to pursue their business ideas and are open to students from all participating UK universities currently partnering with Santander Universities.
