Since 2002, BYU has partnered with the Scottish National Party (SNP) to provide up to five students per semester with unpaid, semester-length internships at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh. Given that most Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs) employ only one or two staffers in their parliamentary office, interns work closely every day with both elected representatives and their key aides. From day one, interns are asked to research issues, help manage the office, interact with constituents, and draft speeches, newspaper columns, and correspondence. On evenings and weekends, students explore Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland, participate in the local ward, and, time and funds permitting, take road trips to London, Paris, and other major European cities. As a result of these varied experiences, Scottish Parliament interns emerge with enhanced professional skills, a heightened appreciation for Scottish and European culture, several credits toward a BYU major or minor, and an unusually impressive credential for graduate school or future employment.
