Listen to some our students discussing the benefits of our Beatrice Schilling Scholarship, which is a funding award for females studying engineering.

The Beatrice Shilling Scholarship

The Beatrice Shilling Scholarship is open to UK fee paying students who identify as female and are applying for an engineering subject at undergraduate level via UCAS. The engineering subjects included are: Aerospace Engineering; Chemical Engineering; Civil Engineering; Computer Science; Electrical, Electronic and Mechatronic Engineering; and Mechanical Engineering.

There are 20 awards of £3,000 for the first year of study and then £1,000 per year up to Year 4. At least half of the scholarships will be awarded to applicants who have a WP or WP+ flag and winners will be announced as soon as possible after A-level results have been published.

There will be no separate application form, as recipients for the award will be considered based on their UCAS application.

To be considered for this scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • be a UK fee paying student applying for an Engineering subject who has identified as female during the UCAS application process;
  • annual payments are subject to a 60% average performance each year;
  • offer-holders should have chosen Manchester as firm choice by the main June UCAS deadline;
  • scholarships are awarded to the highest performing applicants within each Engineering discipline (at least two students per discipline);
  • scholarship candidates are expected to contribute to outreach activities, especially to encourage more females to study courses in engineering.
