The Tamar Engineering Project pilot year
The Tamar Engineering Project (TEP) is a scholarship created to reach out to high achieving students with the potential to be the great engineers of the future; but whose background or circumstances might prevent or deter study at a degree level.
The Project provides a financial award, a course fee-waiver, and industry mentoring to high achieving students who face these barriers, to make studying engineering with us more accessible.
Applications for 2017 - 2018 open in January, in the meantime we are running a pilot year for the project.
The selection of the pilot year recipients was based on criteria that ensures we are supporting high achieving students from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach their full potential.
The following criteria was used for the pilot year:
- one of the top four achievers across 29 engineering degree courses
- from a low household income
- from a low participation neighbourhood
- a care leaver.
