Awards Ceremony

Receive Your Scholarship

The Arkwright Engineering Scholarships are bestowed on the new Scholars at prestigious Ceremonies in late October in the presences of their parents, their Sponsoring Organisation and VIPs from industry and academia.

It takes time to do justice to the talented individuals who received the Scholarships. So we award the ~400 Scholarships per year across four Ceremonies: three in London and one in Edinburgh.

  • Scholars and their parents meet and chat to a representative of their Sponsoring Organisation over light refreshments
  • Guests then gather in the auditorium to hear from a high-profile Principal Speaker and one of Arkwright's Alumni
  • Each Sponsor and their Scholars are announced and receive their certificate on stage
  • Group and individual photos are taken in a dedicated photo room.

"I loved the Award Ceremony and will treasure this memory with pride and gratitude to all concerned."
New Arkwright Scholar, 2015

"The event was fantastic! My son and myself had a brilliant time. Everything was so well organised. The organisers were so friendly and the fantastic venue made a wonderful afternoon. It was an amazing event to celebrate all the achievements that these scarily-talented young people have achieved."
Father of a new Scholar, 2014

"One of the best, if not the best, of ceremonies I have attended - and I attend many as an academic!"
Representative of a Sponsoring Organisation, 2015

"A huge thank you for the wonderful Arkwright Awards Ceremony. Hearing from such influential Speakers has made me even more determined to pursue a career in engineering."
