The Trust supports education through organisations which have established schemes, rather than by adding to the wide array of options presented to potential young engineers and their teachers. Accordingly, the Trust presently supports two Arkwright Scholarships each worth £600 over two years.
The criteria for supporting Arkwright Scholarships used by the Trust are that students should be undertaking their Sixth Form studies at schools in Greater London as a potential lead-in to higher engineering studies.
In 2016, scholarships supported Yousef Bennaceur of Alleyn’s School, Dulwich, London SE22, Miss Tasnim Begum of St Marylebone School 6th Form, London W1 and Andrew Hughes of Eltham College, Mottingham, London SE9. Click here to see details of Arkwright Scholarships www.arkwright.org.uk
