Offer a scholarship

Offering a scholarship can bring benefits to both the student and the sponsor, helping to build long-lasting relationships through Harper Adams University

Why offer a scholarship?

The world needs new talent, and when you offer a scholarship you are helping to nurture the future of individuals, the sector, the wider world and your own business. You could choose to offer scholarship in two ways:

  • a cash scholarship (covering or making a contribution toward tuition fees)
  • both a cash scholarship and a placement year

Some companies also offer students a job after they graduate.

You benefit

Here are some of the ways in which you can benefit from offering a scholarship:

  • A huge pool of talent from which to recruit your growing workforce.
  • Closer ties to the leading university in the sector.
  • Raise your profile amongst talented students and their family and friends.
  • Satisfy your corporate responsibility.
  • Let your clients know your company cares about the education and training of the next generation.
  • Promote your business to the wider academic community and forums
  • Key account management with annual progress reviews

Offering a scholarship with a placement gives the additonal benefits of:

  • Attendance to the Scholarship Fair ahead of the main Careers and Placement fair, giving you 'first refusal' of placement student(s), and also the chance to network with future talent.
  • During the placement year companies get to know and train their chosen student - it's a bit like an extended interview.

Students benefit

  • Financial support.
  • Increased confidence.
  • The chance to learn and earn in the real world.
  • Exploring the field they want to work in.
  • Learning from their colleagues.
  • Developing vocational skills.
  • Relating their work experiences to their studies.
  • Preparing them for graduate employment.
