2017 Engineering & Science Scholarships

Applications for the 2017 Engineering & Science Scholarships are now open.

The United Kingdom Naval Engineering Science & Technology (UKNEST) Forum & Lloyd’s Register Foundation are offering up to 12 Undergraduate Scholarships to students who are interested in future employment in the Naval Defence Sector. In general, UK security clearance is a pre-requisite for employment within this Sector.

The Scholarship is only available to students studying at UK colleges.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from women and those studying science and technology.  The Scholarship is for ONE year, but students may apply for further funding if progress is satisfactory

The Scholarship provides:

  • A Scholarship grant of £3,000 per academic year (£1,000/term)
  • Mentoring
  • A graduate “buddy” 
  • The potential for work-placements.

2018 has been designated the Year of the Engineer.  UKNEST plans to mount a campaign aimed at 12 – 16 year old students to promote the Naval sector as an exciting future career.
