Partners sought for University Scholarship Scheme
The Ironmongers' Foundation is looking for partners to join its University Scholarship Scheme. The Scheme selects students with a high-level of academic excellence from underprivileged backgrounds, so that they would struggle to go to
university without additional financial help beyond a government
grant. The scholars are studying for a first degree in engineering or
materials science, and attend the UK's top universities.
An important part of the
Scheme is the partnership between scholars and sponsors, and the industry
experience this provides. Scholars are encouraged to complete work placements
with partner companies, with a view to joining the
company when they graduate. Companies can benefit by:
nurturing the next generation of engineers and material scientists.
developing a 'pool'
of trained engineers and materials scientists committed to the industry.
Existing scholars can
meet those responsible for graduate development within companies to further explain the scheme.
