ScottishPower is calling on students in Liverpool as it re-launches its Masters Scholarships programme in partnership with ten of the UK’s top universities including the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University.

The programme is open to final year UK undergraduate students looking to progress their careers in energy, environment and digital-related disciplines, including courses in engineering, renewable and sustainable energy systems as well as computer science, cybersecurity and big data management.

The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University joins a host of esteemed universities involved with the programme including the University of Edinburgh, University of Strathclyde, University of Glasgow, University of East Anglia, Glasgow Caledonian University, Bangor University, Wrexham Glyndwr University and Heriot-Watt University.

Established in 2010 to nurture and retain talent in the energy industry, the Scottish Power Scholarships programme has awarded grants to 14 students in the UK, as part of ScottishPower’s commitment to supporting the future leaders of the sector.

Successful candidates will receive full enrolment costs for their Masters degree as well as a generous living allowance of £1,200 per month. ScottishPower has also pledged to work with successful scholars to support their journey into the company after their studies.

Sarah Mistry, HR Operations Director at ScottishPower, said: “We are dedicated to nurturing the next generation of talent in the STEM industries and our scholarships programme creates valuable opportunities for bright individuals looking to develop their skills and expertise to the highest level.

The Scholarships initiative supports our ambitions to lead the way in the renewable energy industry and what better way to do so than by supporting the people who will help us get there and beyond.”

Previous alumni of the ScottishPower Scholarships programme are now working in groundbreaking energy-related fields, soon to include Chelsea Houghton who is in her final year of her Masters scholarship at the University of Liverpool and graduates in September.

Chelsea Houghton said: “Support from ScottishPower has allowed me to follow my dream of becoming an engineer. It gave me a platform to be innovative and passionate about engineering and it’s been great to have this opportunity to help me kick-start my career.”

Applications are now open and close on 29 March 2019 at 2pm. Further information on the ScottishPower Scholarship programme can be found at https://www.scottishpower.com/pages/scottishpower_masters_scholarships.aspx
