Student Placement Innovation Vouchers

The Student Placement Voucher scheme has been developed by Interface to building on existing relationships between Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Scotland.

Before you can apply for a Student Placement Voucher you must have completed a Standard Innovation Voucher. The Student Placement Voucher will build upon the relationship you developed with the HEI team. Your project will be led by the same academic team and should offer valuable business skills and experience to a PhD or Masters Student.

If your application for a Student Placement Voucher is successful you will receive a grant between £1,000 and up to £7,500 which will be used to cover the academic project. The organisation must contribute a matching in kind value, such as staff time, materials, equipment, or a combination of both. The organisation participating must have suitable premises to host the student.

How to Apply

The application form must be completed by both the academic and SME partners. All applications must be completed through the Interface Partner Portal which is managed by your university or college partner. Contact us if you do not have an academic partner or if you have any questions on the scheme. info@interface-online.org.uk
