THE CAPITAL PLACEMENTScholarship Fund
At Capital Placement, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to intern abroad. That’s why we created the Capital Placement Scholarship.
Our scholarships are currently unavailable until further notice.
Exploring and working abroad is a life-changing experience we believe everyone should have. The Capital Placement Scholarship is aimed at recent university graduates who, due to financial constraints, are unable to experience life as an international intern. Not only do we offer a scholarship for graduates, but guarantee a placement on one of our 6-month paid internship programs in London, New York or Singapore.

Applicants must have received a university degree within 12 months of making an application, or are about to graduate from their university.

Must be eligible for our graduate program
See individual graduate program page for more information on eligibility.
Applicants must fill out a cover letter answering all the required questions and submit their applications to our online portal.
Schedule an Online Interview
After submitting an application, applicants are required to schedule an online interview with our team.
Candidates who have successfully received the scholarship will qualify for 50% off any of Capital Placement’s graduate programs.
Applicants must have shown an interest in being abroad, either in their chosen career field or in their academics.
Diversity of background and experience
The Capital Placement Scholarship seeks to provide opportunities to graduates in need of financial assistance, and who will benefit from the knowledge and skills acquired during their internship abroad.
In doing so, we help increase the percentage of underrepresented students and graduates interning abroad. These include, though not limited to, first-generation graduates, racially and ethnically marginalised graduates, and graduates in STEM.
Strong understanding of chosen field and destination
Applicants must show a comprehensive understanding of their chosen field of interest, and present compelling reasons behind their choice of internship destination. Applicants should be able to demonstrate how an internship abroad can help them in the long-term.
