Mechanical Engineering Scholarships, including Whitton, Wilson Campbell & Cochrane.
The awards are aimed at talented, UK undergraduate students, entering the School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering.
Each scholarship is worth up to £4000.
These scholarships are awarded subject to applicants if three of their GCE A-Level grades are A*AA (or better) from any of the following four A-Level subjects: Mathematics, Physics, Further Mathematics or Chemistry.
Students who choose us as their Insurance Choice or are offered a place through UCAS Clearing are not eligible for these Scholarships.
Equivalent grades for other qualifications are determined by the School but the following will normally apply:
Available to any UK undergraduate student applying for First Year (Stage 1) or Foundation Year (Stage 0) entry, who makes a degree programme from School of Mechanical & Systems Engineering their UCAS First Choice. The total number of scholarships is not limited.
You do not need to apply for these awards or complete an application form. Successful students will be identified using the information you have provided on your UCAS application and on your on-line application for loans and grants to the above assessing organisations. The University will use this information to identify those to whom the scholarships are to be awarded.

The scholarships will be paid at the start of each Semester 2: in Stage 1 £750, Stage 2 £750, Stage 3 £1250 and Stage 4 £1250. Foundation year (Stage 0) entrants will receive an extra £750 in Semester 2 of Stage 0.
Wilson William Campbell (1913-1975) was a distinguished Tyneside engineer, whose roles included development of innovative electrical power plant, contributor to World Energy Congress, Vice-President of the I.Mech.E., Commissioner and Synod Chairman for the Church of England and Visiting Professor at this University. These are an encouragement to able and imaginative UK students to study either engineering at this University, with the hope that they will develop an interest in the energy and power generation.
The Whitton Scholarships were established by bequest in 1979 in memory of a former student CNWhitton who went on to become a highly successful figure in industry, to support and encourage able students who wish to study Mechanical Engineering at Newcastle University.
The Cochrane Scholarships were established in the 1960s by the directors and shareholders of Messrs Cochrane & Co Ltd to support students at what was then King's College Durham (later renamed Newcastle University) interested in the study of materials in engineering.
