Students Awarded National Arkwright Engineering Scholarships
Four students selected for their potential as future leaders in engineering and related areas of design.
A record number of Kimbolton students have each been awarded a much sought-after Arkwright Engineering Scholarship that identifies them as a future leader in engineering and related areas of design.
The pupils, Umar Chaudhari, Josh Denton, Andrew Lawrence and Jordan Payne, all were selected for their potential as future engineering leaders during a rigorous assessment process which looked at their academic, practical and leadership skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Supported by their Design Technology Engineering GCSE coursework achievements they were assessed through a rigorous selection process comprising: an application form including a DTE supporting reference; a two-hour aptitude exam; and a university-based interview. The scholarships support STEM pupils through their Sixth Form studies and encourage them into top universities or higher apprenticeships.
The scholarships consist of an annual financial award to each Scholar, and a range of enrichment activities, such as mentoring and industry visits that enhance their experience of engineering and technical design in a real-world context.
Our students will be sponsored throughout their A-Level studies by the following organisations:
Jordan – Rothschild Foundation
Andrew – National Rail
Josh – Coventry University Engineering Department
Umar – Reece Foundation
Arkwright Engineering Scholarships are highly regarded by universities and industry and are one of the most prestigious accolades that a talented Sixth Form student can achieve.
The Scholarships will be formally presented to the students at a prestigious ceremony supported by The Institution of Engineering and Technology later this term.
