We are pleased to announce that ELRIG are sponsoring THREE new scholarships via the Arkwright Scholarships Trust.
The Arkwright Scholarships Trust offers Engineering Scholarships to nurture and inspire high calibre school students to pursue a career in engineering and related areas.
The ELRIG Scholarships will support 3 exceptional students through the next 2 years of their education, as well as help the local STEM department to provide support, mentoring and work experience.
The Trust seeks to identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in engineering and related areas.
They do this by awarding Arkwright Scholarships, through a rigorous selection process, to high-calibre students. The Scholarships support students through their A Levels or Scottish Highers and encourage students to pursue engineering or related areas at university or through a higher-level apprenticeship and to take up careers in the field.
Named after the innovative engineer Sir Richard Arkwright, the ‘father’ of the factory system, the Arkwright Scholarships Trust is one of the most prestigious Award Schemes in the country.
The Scholarships are sponsored by industrial companies, universities, charitable trusts, trade associations, professional engineering institutions, the Armed Services and personal donors.
ELRIG are proud to join this prestigious line-up.
The awards will be presented at a ceremony in London this September … we will bring you more news then !
