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 that have identified as being female when applying to the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Manchester via UCAS for undergraduate degree level study.

The award is a bursary of £1000 or £2000 payable during the first year of study. Applicants identified as with WP or WP+ will receive £2000. Winners will be announced in the autumn, as soon as possible after registration.

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

  • Be recognised as a UK resident and paying home (UK) fees.
  • Should have chosen Manchester as firm choice by the May UCAS deadline.
  • Ensure they are fully registered with their Department on an undergraduate degree course as a new student.
  • Identify as female during the university application process.

There will be no separate application form. All UK students who are holding an offer of a place within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Manchester will be considered for a scholarship. Scholarship candidates are expected to contribute to outreach activities, especially to encourage more females to study courses in Engineering.
