October is Arkwright Scholarship month for the Institution of Electronics.
Every other year a student who is about to enter their 6th form is chosen to receive a scholarship from ourselves.
Arkwright Scholarships record that this year has been very successful with 263 Scholarships being awarded to talented young people, a 5.6% increase on last year. This is particularly pleasing in the current economic climate. The increase has been achieved by a growing recognition of the value that Arkwright delivers to all its stakeholders and a robust strategy of networking with existing and potential sponsors. …684 Schools are now affiliated and.135.sponsors support Scholarships. The cost of supporting a Scholar is £2000 over two years.
The Institution has sponsored two young people, one of whom is now in her second year of studying for a B.Eng in Product Design Engineering.
At the end of this month the presentation to the new recipients will be held in London, where our Chairman , Mr Alan Hollinshead-Jones will be meeting our new scholar.
