What is the Scholarship?
The Millennium Point Trust Scholarship aims to encourage diversity and engagement with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Each year, the Millennium Point Charitable Trust will fully fund one undergraduate degree at Birmingham City University’s Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment. Following an initial application, we select up to five finalists to compete in a live final, presenting on current topics relating to their chosen industry in the context of the West Midlands.
The winner has their undergraduate tuition fees fully-paid by the Millennium Point Charitable Trust for three years and all five finalists will have opportunities for growth and personal development as alumni of the competition, to ensure that they are supported in making the first steps in their career in the West Midlands.
Why Should Your Business Get Involved?
Supporting young people from diverse backgrounds isn’t just a ‘nice’ thing your business can do; it’s an opportunity for your business to make a meaningful impact and be on the forefront of change in the social and economic landscape of the West Midlands.
You’ll have opportunities to expand your networks and widen your CSR through Millennium Point and you might even meet the future talent who will be instrumental to innovating your business.
Where Does The Money Come From?
The Millennium Point Charitable Trust owns the 46,450 sqm landmark Millennium Point building on Curzon street in the eastside of Birmingham City Centre (opposite the future Curzon Railway). Profits from our commercial activity as a landmark public building and multi-award-winning conference and events venue feedback into the charitable trust, enabling it to donate and invest in STEM-related organisations, projects and initiatives.
How Can Your Business Get Involved?
