About STEM Graduates into Business

STEM Graduates into Business is a European Regional Development Funded project delivered by the University of Plymouth Careers & Employability Service. Its aim is to increase the number of paid internships available to recent graduates with small and medium-sized enterprises based in Devon. Funded until spring 2021, the project should produce 80 internships with 80 separate employers across the county.

By providing support and funding to the SMEs, it is hoped that a cohort of graduate employing SMEs will be created which will continue to employ graduates beyond the life of the project.
