The Royal Academy of Engineering's MSc Motorsport Scholarship Programme supports individuals from Black or mixed Black ethnic backgrounds who wish to study a master’s degree in motorsport (or a related eligible course).
The programme is in response to a recommendation made in the Hamilton Commission’s first report, Accelerating Change: Improving Representation of Black People in the UK Motorsport. The Commission was formed by Lewis Hamilton HonFREng and the RAEng to address underrepresentation of Black People in UK motorsport and STEM sectors.
Successful awardees will receive:
- up to £25,000 of funding to cover the full tuition fees and maintenance costs for an eligible Motorsport (or related) MSc course
- dedicated training and networking events with Motorsport representatives
- dedicated Motorsport experiences
- access to career training and support, through the Graduate Engineering Engagement Programme (GEEP)
- access to an online community forum to collaborate and communicate with other awardees and programme supporters
