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.
Exploring and working abroad is a life-changing experience that we believe everyone should have. Our scholarship is designed to help recent graduates take the opportunity of a lifetime and intern abroad for 6 months on our graduate programme in either London, New York and Singapore.

Not only do we offer a scholarship for graduates, we also guarantee a paid internship placement in either of our global cities.
