We're offering twenty awards of £3,000 for the first year of study and a further £1,000 per year up to year four.
There is no separate application form as recipients for the award will be considered based on the UCAS application.
If you're successful, you'll be notified by the 7 April after an offer of study has been made. To accept this scholarship, you'll be required to make the engineering course at Manchester your firm choice via UCAS. The scholarship will be confirmed once all offer conditions have been met.
To be considered for this scholarship, you need to:
- Be a woman (inclusive of trans women) / be assigned female at birth (e.g., AFAB non-binary).
- Have an offer of study for an undergraduate engineering course at The University of Manchester, commencing September 2023.
