"The scholarship has given me a chance to enhance and test my skills in the engineering workplace, as well as helping the next generation of engineering students shape their future."

Josh Oldfield, UKESF Scholar of the Year 2015

SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME

The UKESF offers scholarships to Electronics undergraduates at our partner universities – check the scrolling banner on the Universities main page for your university.

Scholarship duration varies between the sponsoring companies, but generally lasts from the year you apply until graduation, including at least one summer work placement (8 weeks minimum). Some companies also offer additional work placements of 6 or 12 months, or final year industry-based MEng project placements.

WHAT’S INVOLVED

  • Work for your sponsoring company during the summers you agree to when accepting the offer – check our tips for a successful summer placement here
  • Meet with your company mentor at least twice a year
  • Attend one of our Scholar Workshops
  • Help to promote Electronics in schools through at least one activity each year – we’ll support you in this
  • Help at your university in supporting UKESF scholarships to other students
  • Submit annual reports to us and your sponsoring company during the scholarship

The UKESF Scholar Workshops are 4-day residential courses for scholars, packed with professional and personal development sessions and networking with speakers from the Electronics sector. Our workshops help to equip you with skills not covered by university, and also count as 20 hours towards the IET CPD monitoring scheme. Read about the most recent Scholar Workshop here.
