Our STEM Scholarship is designed to support students interested in a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) – fields where there is a recognised skills shortage.
You’ll be eligible if you meet the entry requirements of your chosen course, whether it’s undergraduate or postgraduate.
You’ll receive the full amount in your first year. Payments are made via BACS to a UK bank account at two points in the year, depending upon continued satisfactory academic progress.
To apply for our STEM Scholarship you must:
If a postgraduate, be studying a course in one of the following areas:
Please note that if you change course and move to a non-STEM subject, your scholarship will be withdrawn.
Applicants for our MBChB Medicine are not eligible to apply.
Foundation, extended, degree apprenticeship, distance learning degree programmes and/or CPD and short courses are also excluded.
As well as your academic achievements, we will be assessing:
Complete an application form and submit a 500-word supporting statement outlining why you're suitable for this scholarship.
You may need to submit supporting documentation including evidence of your extra-curricular activities. This is likely to be certificate or letter from a senior member of the organisation(s) you’ve been involved with.
Apply by 12 April 2019.
Your application will be assessed by a panel of ARU staff and representatives from the Students’ Union. You’ll be ranked based on the details you provide in your application and supporting documentation; we may also invite you to an interview to talk about your application.
