Not enough of the UK's 15/16 year old top Design & Technology students are choosing to go on to study engineering and design at University. Without engineers many of today's urgent global and and domestic engineering and technical challenges will remain unsolved - e.g. renewable energy, global warming, pollution, eco-cars and buildings, sustainable farming, surgical equipment and appliances.


Schools are invited to nominate their best Design & Technology students in Year 11 for an Arkwright Scholarship award as they embark on their A Level studies. Each Scholarship, funded by industry and charitable trusts, provides the student with self confidence and self worth; improved careers prospects; funding to enhance their D&T studies; mentoring and support; access to career awareness days, work experience and networking opportunities; possible sponsorship through University.
