The Arkwright Scholarship programme aims to support future leaders in Engineering through financial incentive and practical experiences. The Technology and Design department has been involved since its inception in Northern Ireland in 2012. This year we are pleased to announce that Michael Carville in Year 13 has been awarded a prestigious scholarship, sponsored by The Reece Foundation. Michael began the process in November 2016 with a written application, then sitting a two hour aptitude exam in February before being invited to interview at the end of March. With each stage being marked and only the top candidates progressing, it is a real achievement for Michael to secure his scholarship, and one that is befitting of his ability. He joins the four scholars from last year who have recently been awarded funding and continued scholarship status for Year 14.
