The Arkwright Scholarships Trust administers one of the most prestigious scholarship schemes in the UK aiming to inspire and nurture school-age students to be the country’s future leaders of the Engineering Profession.
The Scholarships are awarded through a rigorous selection process to high-calibre 16 year old students studying Technology and Design and supports students through the two years of their A levels. The application process begins in December of Year 12, submitting a formal application and sitting a two hour aptitude exam with high scoring students invited to interview.
This year Arkwright Trust have awarded 15 scholarships to students from Northern Ireland, with 5 attending Rathmore - Ciara Kennedy, Aodhan Rodgers, Niall McNama, Jack Logue and David Dixon. This is a fantastic achievement which reflects the hard working nature of our students in Technology and Design.
