You must be a first year undergraduate student in one of the following departments:
- Computer Science
- All courses in Electronic and Electrical Engineering (including Robotics Engineering)
- Mathematical Sciences
You must be passionate about coding, keen to develop skills and confidence whilst you study and interested in a career in a technology-driven global company.
Students from other degree programmes are also eligible to apply for a scholarship if they can demonstrate a high enough aptitude for technology, as measured through the selection process.
The scholarship is aimed at, but not exclusive to, females interested in a career in technology and so is open to all first year undergraduate students starting studies in 2021.
You may apply for one of these scholarships even if you have not currently elected to complete a placement year as part of your degree. However, the paid placement is a compulsory part of the scholarship, so you must be willing to commit to the placement year with J.P. Morgan if your application is successful.
JP Morgan may give preference to students studying a four year degree with an industrial placement in the third year, although five year degrees with a fourth year placement will also be considered.
If you are successful in becoming a J.P. Morgan scholar you must maintain a degree average in your exam results equivalent to a 2:1 each year. If you do not meet this yearly average your award may be withdrawn, subject to final approval from J.P. Morgan. Your annual exam average will be shared with J.P. Morgan.
