Welcome to the Arkwright Scholarships Trust
The Arkwright Scholarships Trust is a registered charity that administers the most prestigious scholarship scheme of its type in the UK.
We identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in Engineering and Technical (as opposed to Aesthetic) Design. We do this by awarding Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, through a rigorous selection process, to high-calibre students in year 11 (England and Wales), S4 (Scotland), year 12 (Northern Ireland). Our Engineering Scholarships support students through their A Levels or Scottish Highers and encourage students to pursue Engineering or Technical Design at university or through a higher-level apprenticeship and to take up careers in the field.
The Engineering Scholarships are sponsored by industrial companies, universities, charitable trusts, trade associations, professional engineering institutions, the Armed Services and personal donors.
We also offer a growing number of exclusive Undergraduate Scholarships to support a select group of existing Arkwright Engineering Scholars through university.
The 2013 Awards Ceremonies. 1400 guests over four ceremonies in London and Glasgow. 371 new sixth form Scholars and 7 new Undergraduate Scholars appointed from across England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands.
We rely on the support of people and organisations with an interest in the future of engineering and design. You can make a donation via the Making A Donation page.
