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.
Current recipients are:
2015-17 Miss Tasnim Begum – St Marylebone School 6th Form, London W1;
2015-17 Mr Andrew Hughes – Eltham College, Mottingham, London SE9;
2016-18 Miss Saskia Bustrode – Putney High School, London SW15 6BH;
2016-18 Mr Nicholas Roberts – Highgate School, London N6 4AY.
