British students of Black or mixed Black heritage are underrepresented in the UK engineering-research community. We want to help change that! We invite UK (home) students of Black or mixed Black heritage who are in year 2 or 3 of an engineering or computing degree to apply for a full scholarship for a 2-week project-based experience with Imperial College London.
There is no cost to join the programme as this is a full scholarship opportunity! But please note, to be eligible to apply for this scholarship you need to be a UK (Home) student of Black or mixed Black heritage. The scholarship only covers tuition, you have to provide your own accommodation and transport within London. To apply, fill in the following details and give us a 150 word statement on why you would like to join the programme. In the event that places are oversubscribed, we will use the statements as tie-breakers.
BENEFITS: Intellectually-engaging fun! You will get to experience the benefits of multidisciplinary project-based thinking to identify issues, source information and design solutions to critical issues. A great opportunity to network with students from Imperial and other universities and to learn how to communicate across disciplinary boundaries, allowing you to build confidence in your own potential to be a proactive researcher/problem-solver.
Furthermore you will get the chance to hear from world-leading researchers in the Engineering profession and spend 2 weeks at Imperial College London where there is a greater proportion of world-leading research than any other UK University and which is ranked 1st in the UK for research output, 1st for research environment and 1st for research impact (Research Excellence Framework, REF 2021)
DISCIPLINES: open to any discipline in Engineering or Computer Science. The design challenge will be based around solutions for humans facing difficult or extreme situations which need engineered solutions.
