The Trust supports education through organisations which have established schemes, rather than by adding to the wide array of options presented to potential young engineers and their teachers. Accordingly, the Trust presently supports two Arkwright Scholarships each worth £2,000 over two years.
The criteria for supporting Arkwright Scholarships used by the Trust are that students should be undertaking their Sixth Form studies as a direct lead in to higher engineering studies.
Current recipients are:
2018-20 Beth McDowell – Assumption Grammar School, Co Down
2018-20 Ruben Heyse – Maidstone Grammar School, Kent
2019-21 Molly Palmer – Keswick School, Cumbria
2019-21 Richard Buscaglia – St John The Baptist School, Surrey
