A career in engineering can be a rewarding and lucrative one, whether you decide to enter the world of work via the route of a degree, or through a work-based apprenticeship.
But the path to an engineering qualification can come with financial barriers. For example, many young people now worry that a UK university degree to be prohibitively expensive, with tuition fees now standing at over £9,000 per year.
And while there are tuition fees loans on offer, it’s natural for students to worry about the cost of living as they’re working to get their engineering qualification.
It’s not just university students. If you’re reading this and you’re an aspiring apprentice, you might be worrying about the cost of living while you’re working.
Luckily, there are a number of organisations and charities that offer engineering scholarships and bursaries.
Some are designed to support you if you’re still at school and might be in the early stages of planning your engineering career, while others are designed to cover the cost of study if you’re already at university and on a clearly defined engineering path.
In order to make life a bit easier we have put together a list of some of the best engineering scholarships out there, what they offer and how can you apply for them.
