ARKWRIGHT ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIPS
Arkwright Engineering Scholarships exists to identify, inspire, and nurture outstanding engineers of the future as they leave school and progress into the exciting world of engineering.
The Arkwright Engineering Scholarship Programme inspires the best and brightest to pursue their dreams of changing the world through engineering. The Scholarship is perfect for highlighting individual achievement when you apply to university and degree apprenticeship programmes. Because while your classmates will be filling their applications with details of which science and technology clubs they’re members of, you will have the added bonus of stating that you’re one of our Scholars. And that’s something that sets you apart.
We’ll develop your leadership skills, give you real-world experience of what it is to be one of the industry’s most innovative engineers and match you with a dedicated mentor in your area of interest; you and your school will also benefit from financial support. We work in close partnership with engineering industry giants such as The Royal Air Force, Virgin Atlantic, McLaren Racing and DePuy Synthes, and have links with the UK’s leading engineering universities – more than 95% of our Scholars go on to complete higher education.
Your school must be partnered with the Arkwright Engineering Scholarships programme before you can apply for a Scholarship. If your school is not partnered ask your teacher to complete the school partnership form. Partnership is quick, simple and FREE.
You must apply during year 11 (England and Wales), S4 (Scotland), year 12 (Northern Ireland). The Scholarship will be awarded as you begin year 12 (England and Wales), S5 (Scotland), year 13 (Northern Ireland) to study subjects which will prepare you for a university degree or higher-level apprenticeship and career in Engineering.
A £45.00 administration fee is payable, for each student application. This helps to cover the cost of Arkwright's rigorous selection process. This fee may be payable by the School or the applicant's parents depending on local arrangements (which are beyond the control of Arkwright Engineering Scholarships). Teachers should decide how best the fee can be paid.
