UK: Kingsbury Scholarship | Imperial College London

Overview

The Kingsbury Scholarship is a highly prestigious engineering scholarship for undergraduates who have chosen Imperial as their firm choice and have received a conditional offer for a course within the Faculty of Engineering.
Students will receive a full scholarship of £19,000 a year for the duration of their 4-year course. This includes a tuition fee waiver of £9,000 per annum, plus a £10,000 a year maintenance grant.

Eligibility

To be eligible candidates must be Home/UK students who qualify for financial support from Student Finance England, with a household income of less than £60,000.
 This scholarship is aimed at bright and dynamic students who intend to ultimately seek employment as a graduate in UK industry. As such, the applicants must agree to defer their course for a year to work in industry first.
Applicants must:
Be a Home/UK student who qualifies for financial support through Student Finance England, with a household income of less than £60,000 per annum
  • Have a confirmed place at Imperial for an undergraduate course within the Faculty of Engineering for 2012
  • Agree to defer their course for a year to work for at least 9 months in industry. We would suggest using the Engineering Development Trust’s scheme Year In Industry. Your course at Imperial would therefore start in 2013.



About Year In Industry

Year In Industry is an initiative of the Engineering Development Trust (EDT), a registered education charity that helps talented young people achieve their full potential through careers in engineering, science and technology.
 YINI provide high-quality, paid placements for students interested in all areas of engineering and science, and have placed students with 300 top UK companies including Shell, Rolls Royce, British Energy, Network Rail and AstraZeneca. These placements provide the skills and knowledge employers are looking for, and the experience that will help the students make the most of university. Placements are situated all around the country and a regional YINI manager will provide mentorship and support whenever necessary. The students typically earn between £9,000 to £14,000 from August / September to June / July.
 YINI recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. As part of their celebration they identified a ‘bright spark and shining example’ from each of their years in operation. Katie Pavey was the student they profiled from 2007, who is currently studying Mechanical Engineering at Imperial. Katie says of the scheme:
 “My Year In Industry has been really beneficial to me so far in my manufacturing engineering modules, lab work and group projects. Working in Industry as part of a project team also gave me the skills and confidence to give the technical presentations and reports for my university coursework. I have already experienced the benefits that doing a Year In Industry can bring.”

How to apply

To apply for the Kingsbury Scholarship please email scholarships@imperial.ac.uk by 10 June 2012 with a written statement in no more than 250 words that describes how you intend to seek employment in UK engineering industry after you graduate

Selection Process

The Department that you have applied to will assess your academic merit from your UCAS form and from your 250 word statement. Applicants will be ranked by Departments and the final selection will be made by the Principal of the Faculty of Engineering.

Outcome of Awards

The successful applicant will be notified by email no later than 31 August 2012. The award will not be allocated until we have confirmed you are from a household with a residual income of less than £60,000. The award is for applications for the academic year 2012-13. If your application is successful you will then have to defer your course until 2013-14 and take a year in industry first. However, if you have already completed a year in industry you will not be expected to defer for another year and can apply to start your course in 2012-13.  
If you have not heard from us by 31 August 2012, please assume you have been unsuccessful in your application. 

Year in industry

If you choose to take your year in industry through The Year in Industry organisation, it is recommended you apply in good time. Please see their website for more details. If you arrange your year in industry yourself, your employment must be within the engineering industry in the UK (if you are unsure of this definition please contact scholarships@imperial.ac.uk).  
Please note that proof will be required of your placement. If your application is successful but you have not yet arranged a year in industry and are having problems doing so, please contactscholarships@imperial.ac.uk
