Scholarships at University of Bolton
|Nayak Engineering Scholarship (NES)|
|Scholarship Name||Nayak Engineering Scholarship (NES)|
|Scholarship Deadline||1 September 2019|
Purpose Of The Scholarship
Dr. Uday Nayak is the Group Chairman of Kayan Aviation Holdings Ltd. Dr. Nayak recognises the potential of encouraging high calibre STEM students to read engineering. The scholarship aims to attract the most able students via a fee waiver in their final year along with a £2,000 cash bursary. Without NES some of the most able candidates may be prevented from reading for a degree due to finances.
UK PLC faces a considerable challenge in recruiting the most gifted young people for careers in STEM. Many companies reported an ageing workforce in many engineering disciplines and are worried how their business can be sustained without a progression of talent from schools and Universities.
Dr. Nayak has recognised the issue the skill shortage in industry and the intervention needed to attract high calibre youth into engineering.
The financial scholarship will attract these young people to read STEM subjects instead of other areas.
Extent Of The Scholarship
NES will be awarded to qualifying students at the beginning of the first year of the relevant degree program. The financial drawdown of the scholarship monies will be distributed in the final year of studies subject to making good progress throughout the course.
Students must have selected the University of Bolton as first choice through UCAS by “decline by default” (early May in the year of starting the course).
The NES is a ONE YEAR tuition fee waiver plus £2,000 cash bursary (paid as monthly stipend of £200 per month for 10 months) for qualifying students reading a higher education degree course offered by the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering or the wider School of Engineering at the University of Bolton.
To a qualifying or eligible student (see below), NES is worth up to a maximum of one year published home tuition fee plus £2,000 bursary for help with living expenses. For 2018, the tuition fee is set at £9,250 per year and this fee will rise in line with inflation as approved through the new UK Government regulator – Office for Students. As an example, home student tuition fees rose from £9,000 per year in 2012 to £9,250 per year in 2018.
The tuition fee is waived for a qualifying student via NES for the FINAL year of the normal duration of the course and NES aims to attract the most talented students to the University of Bolton’s undergraduate degree courses in engineering. Terms and Conditions are set out at the end of this document.
TWO NES awards are available in each academic year from September 2019 for five years (2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023) and the first two qualifying or eligible applications received by the set deadline of the first day of September in the relevant intake year, will be given the scholarship subject to the stated Terms and Conditions.
In the event of two or more qualifying applicants applying for NES (submitting the form electronically via the website) at the same time, then the University Provost or relevant senior academic directed by the President & Vice Chancellor, will decide which one applicant under this collision of applicants is granted the award. This decision will be based on the personal statement on the application form.
The award is restricted to one award per student, hence the fee waiver will only be applied for the FINAL year of the normal duration of the course and the bursary will be paid as monthly stipend across 10 months during the FINAL year of the course. All applications to NES must be received by 1st September in the respective year of entry and evidence pointing to student’s UCAS application and results will need to be provided, however the applicant must select the University of Bolton as their first choice through UCAS by the decline by default date in the month of May of the year of intake (eligible applicants will be reminded).
How To Apply
Potential students can apply for the NES award via the online application, open from 1 June 2019.
Applications will open after the decline by default date, on 1 June 2019 for the 2019/20 award and will close on 1 September 2019.
