Arkwright Engineering Scholarships

Arkwright inspires future leaders in engineering and related areas of design. It does this by awarding Scholarships through rigorous selection to high-calibre, engineering-minded students as follows:

  • Engineering Scholarships – awarded to year 11/S4 Design & Technology and Technological Studies students to support them through their sixth form studies. Scholars receive £600 (over 2 years) and access to a variety of enrichment activities. School D&T/Technological Studies Departments receive £400 (over 2 years) to support the purchase of new equipment.
  • Undergraduate Scholarships – A small number of Scholarships valued at £3000 per year are on offer in 2011 for the first time to support a select group of existing Arkwright Engineering Scholars through their university degree course.

Arkwright is one of the most prestigious Scholarship schemes in the UK. Case studies show the excellent exam results and careers that Scholars have achieved over the twenty years of Arkwright’s existence.

Arkwright operates across Britain and since 1991 it has awarded over 2350 Scholarships, growing year on year
