Arkwright Engineering Scholarships are a The Smallpeice Trust programme (a registered charity) and are the most prestigious scholarship scheme of its type in the UK.

Through our Arkwright Engineering Scholarships programme we identify, inspire and nurture future leaders in Engineering, Computing and technical (as opposed to aesthetic) Design. We do this by awarding Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, through a rigorous selection process, to high-calibre students who apply when in year 11 (England and Wales), S4 (Scotland), year 12 (Northern Ireland). Our Arkwright Engineering Scholarships support students through their A Levels or Scottish Advanced Highers and encourage students to pursue Engineering, Computing or technical Design at university or through a higher-level apprenticeship and to pursue careers in the field.

Every Arkwright Engineering Scholarship is sponsored by an industrial company, university, charitable trust, trade association, professional institution, armed service, worshipful company, industry regulator or personal donor.
