Help section

Bigging yourself up can be quite daunting—we get that—but it’s an awesome skill to have which is why we’ve made this handy little guide to help you with the application process.

WHAT ARE WE ASKING FOR?

You’ll need to download and fill out this application – it’s pretty simple and will only take a few minutes.   Files should be no larger than 10mb.


Optional supporting materials

Supporting materials are not required but could help you in your application.

We want to know more about you – but also, this is your opportunity to show us more about you.

They can be anything from your UCAS application to a supporting letter from a school, business owner, parent or guardian. Interested in Civil Engineering, why not include a picture or short video of you building something; or maybe if you’re looking to study Music Technology you might want to include a track you’re working on. Proud of something you’ve done in your chosen field? Show us!


ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS

1. Why should you win the Millennium Point Trust Scholarship?

What achievements are you most proud of? These could be academic, practical or personal. Perhaps you hold a position of responsibility in or out of school, or have undertaken work experience or voluntary work, do you have a hobby that’s allowed you to shine? Do you have a plan for the future? What’s that one problem in the world right now that you’re itching to solve? What is it that you like to achieve, and how do you think you’d use the knowledge and experience you’ll gain through the scholarship to help get there? 

And how would a free degree change your life? Would this scholarship give you opportunities that you wouldn’t have had? How do you think that you could benefit from the support the scholarship offers and public speaking and team building?


2. Why do you want to study your chosen subject at higher education level?

What will studying that subject do for you? Tell us a bit more about why you like the subject, your inspirations, passions and motivations. What fascinates you about it? What has to lead you to want to study this subject? Where would you like this degree to take you?


3. What impact would you like to make through your chosen career?

There’s no wrong answer to this – just think big picture. Think about it as if you had the chance to make an impact with no strings attached (i.e. money, time or resource restraints). You might want to explain why you want to make this impact, how you would make it happen and what brought you to want to make this impact (if any).


WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once you’ve completed your application someone from our team will be in touch to confirm we’ve got everything we need. We’ll then be back by 6th February 2019 to let you know whether you’ve successfully made it to our 2019 shortlist.
