The Mercy Corps Student Programme is an opportunity for students attending Scottish universities to use their passion for volunteering, fundraising, and raising awareness to help support and influence lasting change for communities around the globe.

We recognise the importance of involving student volunteers across the organisation, after all you are all our future leaders and change makers. Students like you can contribute significantly to our cause by giving your time, passion, skills and energy.

Our Student Volunteers are remarkable.

By joining the University Student Programme, you will become part of a global community of humanitarians. You will raise awareness of our work, fundraise for lasting global change and invite us to key on-campus events such as panel discussions.

To ensure you get the most value for your time as a volunteer with us, we will facilitate a range of meaningful opportunities to gain insight and knowledge from team members, host workshops to learn more about the invaluable work we do within our global communities and help you develop your employability skills through fundraising and public speaking opportunities.
