Unlock their future with a fully funded STEM degree at Birmingham City University

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 and Birmingham City University 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 is it Important?

It’s been estimated that 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t even been invented yet. Currently, there is a shortfall of 173,000 skilled workers as 89% of STEM businesses struggle to recruit. New STEM roles expected to double in the next 10 years: businesses warn of economic impact if skills shortage continues. STEM skills are not limited to STEM businesses but encompass the entire working landscape.

How does our work affect this?

The Millennium Point Charitable Trust invest over £4.5 million each year to support the growth of STEM education in the West Midlands. The Millennium Point Trust Scholarship breaks down barriers and creates a more accessible route to a STEM career. Our charity also works closely with industry and educators to bridge the disconnect between STEM talent and STEM employers.
