Arkwright Engineering Scholarship – interview results

The outcome of my interview for the Arkwright Engineering Scholarship came through on 16 July – I was successful.

The scholarship gives a financial award of £600 to the scholar over the two years of sixth form and £400 to the scholar’s school, but I am more interested in the industry links and mentoring that will hopefully be available to me.

I do not yet know who my sponsor will be, but will find out in August…

Update on Arkwright scholarship

Earlier this year I was made aware of the Arkwright Scholarships Trust, and their engineering scholarships which are available to those with an interest in the topic who intend to study mathematics at A-level. Unfortunately, I was only told about the scholarship three days before the deadline for applications, but nonetheless applied.

A few weeks later, with six others, I sat the aptitude exam, which consists of several interesting problems for which applicants are to design innovative solutions. I found it stimulating and not that challenging, though I was not sure whether I had done particularly well given that I study electronics instead of product design (and was hence unaware of finer details such as construction methods and materials).

Much to my relief, an email finally arrived on 3 March with the good news that I had been selected to progress through to the interview stage. This consists of a twenty-minute interview with two interviewers who have experience in engineering. Out of the seven from my school who had applied, three were successful.
