For over 15 years, BYU has partnered with the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh to provide several unpaid internships per semester. From their first day on the job, interns work closely with their assigned Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) and one or two other staffers. Parliamentary interns conduct focused research on pressing issues, conduct constituency service, interact with voters, and draft speeches, newspaper articles, and correspondence. On evenings and weekends, students explore Edinburgh and other parts of Scotland, participate in the local ward, and, time and money allowing, travel in Europe. Interns emerge from the experience with a compelling, evidence-based narrative about the professional value of their internship, opening doors to graduate school or future employment.
