The Happold Foundation is delighted to award seven students with a prestigious Arkwright Scholarship.
Presented to sixth form students who have shown excellence in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects, the awards provide funding for each scholar and their school, as well as work experience and mentoring opportunities. The scholarships are designed to inspire students to follow a career in engineering and design. We are honoured to be one of the organisations that supports the initiative.
The students were presented with their awards at two ceremonies, in Edinburgh on the 27th October and London on November 3rd.
One of the new scholars, Cassia Fillingham, said “I was delighted to receive the news from the Arkwright Trust that the Happold Foundation has chosen to sponsor me throughout the two years of my Arkwright Scholarship. I feel privileged to be supported by an organisation that is dedicated to education and making a positive impact on people’s lives.”
Callum Martin, another of our new scholars, commented: “I am very grateful and delighted to receive this news and look forward to the exciting prospects and opportunities.”
Happold Foundation Chairman Gavin Thompson was at the ceremony to present the scholarship. He said: “we are committed to supporting students on their path to becoming the next generation of engineers. We are so impressed with the knowledge and passion demonstrated by this years’ scholars, and we are really looking forward to working with them over the next two years.”
