Thomas Walker Scholarship - mature students
This scholarship was established in the memory of Thomas Walker (BEng 1931, MEng 1933) thanks to a generous legacy from the estate of his late wife Mrs Daisy Eveline Walker(pictured left)
The scholarship is intended to assist a mature student to return to education to study for a degree in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. The scholarship will provide a stipend of £3,000 per year for each year of the degree programme. For the purposes of this scholarship, a mature student is defined by the University as any student who is over the age of 21 on entry. We would particularly welcome applications from individuals with dependants and/or caring responsibilities.

Anne Bainbridge Scholarships - female students
The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is offering Scholarships up to £2,000 to female students who achieve the published academic requirements and commence their first year of undergraduate studies with us in 2018. Women are currently under represented in Engineering, generally, and our aim is to redress this imbalance in EEE. Our commitment to this can be measured by the award of an Athena Swan Bronze Award to the Department.
