New Undergraduate Engineering scholarships awarded

14 November 2011

The Arkwright Scholarships Trust has awarded its inaugural Undergraduate Scholarships in Engineering to three outstanding candidates in the UK.

The Scholarships support students over the full duration of their undergraduate degrees and are worth between £9,000 and £12,000 each. The Scholarships have been made possible through the support of The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust (LRET) and The Reece Foundation.

Dr Martin Thomas, the National Director of the Arkwright Scholarships Trust, said: “Whatever the long-term effect of the changing tuition fees, more high-calibre young people need to be encouraged to choose engineering at undergraduate level. These Scholarships mark a new step in Arkwright’s efforts to contribute to this need, working in collaboration with these key partners.”

The three Scholarships were bestowed on the recipients – Supriya Gopinath, Edmund Eustace and David Hewlett – at the annual Arkwright Scholarships Award Ceremonies hosted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology in London and Glasgow.
Mr Michael Franklin, Director of The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust comm
ented: “After many years of successful involvement with the Arkwright scheme, I am delighted that The LRET is extending its support to one of three inaugural undergraduate scholarships.
Arkwright Scholars demonstrate not only academic excellence, but skills, abilities, initiative and energy which set them apart from their peers. Together we are giving vital, practical encouragement to one of the country’s top engineering students.”
