Fuellers’ Arkwright Engineering Scholar at the Institute of Physics

Go Back to Charitable Trust Fund

The Fuellers' Charitable Trust is proud to support the Arkwright Engineering Scholarships.  Awarded to hard-working 16 year old students through a rigorous selection process, scholarships support them through their A levels or equivalent qualifications. As a result of her visit to the The Fuellers' Duke of Edinburgh Future Energy Conference 2023, Fuellers' Scholar Emma was invited to attend the IoP's  Physics Powering the Green Economy reception earlier in February. Emma writes:

"Thank you for arranging for me to attend the Institute of Physics reception. It was so interesting to see how all of the exhibiting companies and organisations were using physics in the industry to help combat climate change and how this links in with the economy. It also allowed me to hear about the technology behind these advanced ideas, so I could see the implications and uses of the physics I have been learning in my A-level course. It gave me the opportunity to meet people working in the industry and hear about their experiences studying physics at university and beyond which I found beneficial and has left me more excited than ever to start my physics degree."
