Waived fees for aspiring engineers


For high school students who are torn between studying at a university versus a college; a scholarship might just sway it for you.

The University of Bolton is proud to be home to the UK’s only National Centre for Motorsport Engineering (NCME), which has secured £100,000 worth of funding to help two aspiring motorsport engineers into higher education and throughout the duration of the course.

The scholarships mean fees will be waived for all three years of the degree, and they will also cover the costs of student accommodation, as well as a subsistence allowance for other expenses.

A particular aim of these scholarships is to support keen engineers from disadvantaged backgrounds and they have been donated by three benefactors acutely aware of the current lack of diversity in the sector.

What you’ll study

Year 1: You’ll be doing the basics; understanding the sciences that are embedded throughout the entire degree.
Year 2: Kick off your own special project working within a group where you can do your own thing – which could be anything from an electric vehicle to a hill climb car.
Year 3: Formula Student is very much at the forefront of your agenda – you’ll be taking part in that championship building a car and taking it to Silverstone.

How to apply

To be considered, applicants must meet entry requirements, and the scholarships are limited to full-time UK students only, who will be required to submit a personal statement of 500 words. A shortlist will be drawn up and applicants then interviewed to identify the three successful scholarship candidates.
