Are your students the next generation of engineering leaders?
Undergraduates who are leaders, or act as role models in your institution or their community should be encouraged to apply to the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Engineering Leaders Scholarship (ELS) scheme.
Some of the previous recipients of the scholarships have mentioned that without the opportunity to explore the opportunities that the funding provides (£5,000 to put towards career development activities) they may have turned their back on engineering and pursued finance, consulting or other professions.
Other recipients have met senior engineers that have acted as mentors or provided advice during their scholarship which in some cases has turned into a graduate job post-graduation.
Each year of the three years that students are part of the programme they will attend an annual networking weekend along with around 100 other ELS scholars from all over the UK.
Applications are welcome from all talented undergraduates who meet the criteria but for those of you at Post-92 universities if you could raise awareness with your students and encourage them to apply as they are less likely to apply to the scheme than undergraduates at either Russell group universities or other institutions that have been successful in the past.
Jacqueline Clay, the University Programme Manager at the Royal Academy of Engineering is more than happy to speak with any of you or your students so please get in touch for more information email@example.com
