Scholarships and Student Funding

Atkins Engineering Scholarships

Atkins will offer one scholarship for undergraduate study at the University of Edinburgh for the academic year 2014-2015.

The scholarship has a value of £2,000 per year, paid directly to the student. The award is tenable from the 3rd year of study, for students currently studying degree programmes MEng Chemical Engineering or MEng Chemical Engineering with Management, for the remainder of their programme of study.

Successful applicants may also be offered internships or summer work with Atkins.


The scholarship is awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit.

Any student (UK/EU/International) is eligible who is studying full time and is currently in year 3 of their degree programme in either MEng in Chemical Engineering or MEng in Chemical Engineering with Management.

The scholarship may be terminated at any time if, in the opinion of the Selection Committee, you:

  • fail to make satisfactory progress
  • withdraw
  • otherwise cease to be registered as a full-time student at the University of Edinburgh


Applicants should be aware that they may be required to attend an interview with representatives from Atkins as part of the selection process.

Only students who are fully matriculated and are studying full time and currently in Year 3 of their undergraduate degree programme in MEng Chemical Engineering or MEng Chemical Engineering with Management are eligible to complete an online scholarship application.

This award is now closed. We can no longer accept applications for the 2014-2015 academic session.

Selection Procedure

All applicants will be notified of the outcome by April 2015.
