Applications are now open for our life-changing scholarship at Birmingham City University.
Each year, the Millennium Point Charitable Trust fully fund an undergraduate degree at Birmingham City University’s Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment, which covers over 20 different courses ranging from civil engineering to video game design and film production.
Now in its sixth year, the Millennium Point Trust Scholarship has funded four young people through their degrees at Birmingham City University, with the fifth winner, Laura starting her course in Film Production Technology this month.
Who can apply?
Applications are only being accepted from students living in the West Midlands region, who cannot already have or currently be studying an undergraduate degree.
Why should they apply?
All finalists will benefit from the programme with opportunities that can kick start their career in science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM).
One person will get a fully funded degree – which means they won’t pay their undergraduate tuition fees. They’ll also have several opportunities to develop through networking, events and industry links provided through Millennium Point.
All finalists receive skills development and training to build their confidence before the live final. Following the competition, they can become an alumnus of the programme and benefit from a range of opportunities such as mentoring, work placements and networking.
How can they apply?
The application process is broken down into two stages, with those who proceed to stage two getting to present their story to a live audience comprised of key stakeholders and industry experts.
The first stage is quick and easy, they just need to fill out an application and submit it to our online form with any supporting materials before 11:59pm 31st January 2020. We’ll then select up to 6 finalists to compete in the live final in March.
