The number of UKESF Scholarships awarded to Electronics undergraduates at partner universities for 2018/19 has risen by 26% compared to the previous academic year.

Applicants were able to apply to up to four of the 39 leading companies in the Electronics sector offering UKESF Scholarships. Each scholarship includes an bursary, a paid summer work placement and a paid-for place at the residential UKESF Scholar Workshop, among other benefits.

The successful applicants are now being introduced to their buddies (established or graduated scholars), who will share their experiences and provide support as the newly awarded scholars enter the workplace, take part in outreach activities and start to set objectives for the future.

The scholarships vary in duration and company-specific requirements. Employers interested in joining the scheme can find out more here.
