School of Marine Science and Technology | UKNEST Scholarships


UKNEST ( exists to develop and sustain the vision and implementation of a worldclass naval engineering, science and technology intellectual base in the UK. It provides a forum for the UK’s professional naval engineering, science and technology community through which to address issues of common concern, fostering specific professional development needs, and giving a focal point for interaction with, and influencing the wider Government and industrial community.

As part of its work, UKNEST wishes to offer three undergraduate sponsorships to students studying subjects suitable for future employment in the sector. In addition to a bursary of £3,000 per annum (paid as £1,000 per term), the scholarship will provide students with a mentor from a UKNEST member organisation and access to that organisation in support of their studies. The bursary will be awarded to one student entering their second year of study, one student entering their third year and one student in their final year.
