Arkwright Scholarship 2010-2011
Andrew Kwok (Stradbroke House) has become the 14th College student to receive an Arkwright Scholarship. He was presented with his award (below) at a ceremony held at The Institution of Engineering and Technology in Savoy Place, London in October 2010.
Andrew achieved an impressive A* at GCSE in Design & Technology: Graphic Products and is presently studying Product Design as part of his AS course in the Sixth Form at Framlingham.
Arkwright Scholars are selected following a rigorous process comprising an application, Arkwright Aptitude Paper and interview. During the interview students presented their GCSE project work to a panel of interviewers and discussed their commitment to design, engineering and technology. Interviews are hosted across the country by universities and interviewees participate in a team activity and tour the engineering/design departments.
The Arkwright Trust was founded in 1990 and this year celebrates its 20th year of Scholarship awards. Arkwright supports young people during their ‘A’ Levels by awarding £250 a year to assist with the purchase of materials and books and students also carry the status of ‘Arkwright Scholar’ into university.
