Key benefits include:

Financial help

You receive £600 as part of the Scholarship - use this funding to support the purchase of components and materials to complete your personal technical projects or enhance your curriculum projects. Alternatively, use the money to purchase text books, reference books, or to fund your attendance on technical courses, summer schools or university open days. Your school receives £400 if you secure a Scholarship which it must spend on equipment, materials or teacher training to enhance the delivery of STEM subjects.


Mentoring

Wherever possible we or your Sponsor will pair you with a Mentor - a Professional Engineer who can provide advice and guidance about your future study and career development, and even technical advice to help with your projects.

 


Enrichment opportunities

Scholars have access to wide variety of exclusive events run by our partner companies, universities and trade associations. These will give you an insight into aspects of different sectors of industry and academia. Through our quarterly E-newsletter we also provide Scholars with access to third-party events, lectures and competitions.
