Arkwright Engineering Scholarship Success

Three S5 pupils have been selected for an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship.

The Arkwright Engineering Scholarship Programme inspires the best and brightest to pursue their dreams of changing the world through engineering.

At a ceremony held in Edinburgh recently, S5 pupils, Ailsa, Zac, and Charlotte, were presented with the prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarship by former Arkwright scholar Andrew Shedden.

Andrew, who following his degree in mechanical engineering, worked in winning Formula 1 teams and is now running his own consultancy business. He gave an inspiring talk about the diverse range of career opportunities in Engineering and how this can be achieved.

The Arkwright Engineering Scholarship scheme has been running for thirty years and aims to support and encourage future engineers, “to identify, inspire, and nurture outstanding engineers of the future as they leave school and progress into the exciting world of engineering.”

This year’s scholars join a list of over 30 Hutchesonian’s who have been awarded the scholarship. Mr McCormick, Head of Technology, said:

“Hutchesons’ has a long history of nurturing talented pupils who go on to study engineering at university. I am delighted that three of our young engineers have been identified as potential future leaders in the sector.”

Each successful candidate must complete a personal engineering project, aptitude exam and interview. Successful pupils from around the UK were awarded scholarships funded by commercial companies, universities, charitable trusts and personal donors. In addition to financial support for the winning students and their schools, Arkwright scholars benefit from work experience and mentoring opportunities.

Congratulations to all three of our Arkwright scholars, we are immensely proud.
