Students must submit their initial, online applications between September and January each academic year. A £40.00 administration fee is payable, by April, 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 the Arkwright Engineering Scholarships). Teachers should decide how best the fee can be paid.

We work with schools' STEM Departments to identify high-potential students in Year 11 (England and Wales), S4 (Scotland), Year 12 (Northern Ireland) and we support them through their A levels or Scottish Highers.

Schools can become partnered with Arkwright Engineering Scholarships quickly, easily and for free. Why not join over 1200 schools and sixth form colleges who have already benefitted from the scheme?
