About this scholarship

Recent Engineering UK data shows that 61.9% of white engineering and technology graduates were working in the engineering sector within 6 months of graduation compared to only 41.6% of black engineering and technology graduates. This scholarship is a positive action specifically targeted at increasing participation by black students in the engineering workforce after graduation.


Eligible applicants will be asked to complete either a 2 minute Vlog, or a 300 word Blog on the question:

‘How will the role of engineers in 2040 be different to the role of engineers today?’


‘What do you feel is the biggest global challenge we are facing today and how will engineers be involved in meeting that challenge?’
