Arkwright Scholarship

Congratulations to William of S5 on being awarded a prestigious Arkwright Scholarship.

Arkwright Engineering Scholars represent the country’s ‘brightest and best’ 16 year old students who are keen to become the UK’s future leaders of the Engineering Profession.

Out of 1,546 applicants in the UK, 736 students were originally selected to go through to the interview stage. Heriot’s pupils Avinash, William K, Cameron, William S, Joe and Amius were amongst those who made it to this stage. Unfortunately covid meant that interviews could not go ahead and scholars were selected on the strength of their application and aptitude exam with only 16 awards going to Scottish students. This makes William’s achievement all the more outstanding.
