The Arkwright Scholarships Trust conducted its annual awards of prestigious scholarships to future leaders of the engineering profession at ceremonies in London and Edinburgh in early November.

The Arkwright Engineering Scholarships act as a beacon to the most talented STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) students in UK schools and help to ensure that high potential young people stay engaged in the engineering careers pipeline.

Holly Farrow attends Stamford School in Lincolnshire and is studying product design, maths, physics and Latin. She is particularly interested in architecture and sustainable design and in her spare time is part of her school’s theatre production stage crew.

Patrons Chair David Fitzpatrick said "We are delighted to continue our longstanding support for the Arkwright Scholarships Trust and very pleased to have Holly as our latest adopted scholar. We wish her every success with her A2 level studies over the next two years."​
