Scholarship

YOUR UNIVERSITY DEGREE PAID FOR BY MILLENNIUM POINT

Do you want to design bridges, produce the next wicked soundtrack, film or design the next best-selling video game? Then we want to hear from you. We’ve partnered with Birmingham City University to give one lucky winner each year to receive a fully funded undergraduate degree at their Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment.

   

Applications for the Millennium Point Scholarship 2019 have now closed. You can register your interest for 2020 by getting in touch with our team.

WHAT’S ON OFFER?

There’s one scholarship up for grabs, but everyone who makes it to the second stage of the application process will benefit.

You’ll get a free skills development workshop, support in the second stage of your application and networking opportunities as a member of our Scholarship alumni. You’ll also be acquiring vital skills, confidence as well as potential connections that could help get you started on your career path.

The winner will have tuition fees for their chosen undergraduate degree paid for from BCU’s Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment. They’ll also have a number of opportunities to network with industry leaders, and various media opportunities and support through us before, during and after their degree.

WHY DO WE DO IT?

Now more than ever thousands of jobs are opening up in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in the West Midlands with not enough skilled people to do them. To make sure we unlock the future growth of the region, we know first that we must unlock your future. This scholarship is our way of making sure that these jobs are accessible to everyone, regardless of who you are.

HOW DO I APPLY?

Fill out our online form and submit your answers to the three questions and any supporting materials. We’ll then choose up to six finalists to present at a live final on 27th March 2019 – don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds. We make sure you’re fully prepared.
