Winning Women in Technology: J.P. Morgan scholarships
These scholarships are designed to support the brightest minds who are interested in software engineering and the technology industry.
First-hand experience with a global financial leader
J.P. Morgan is a global leader in financial services, offering solutions to the world's most important corporations, governments and institutions in more than 100 countries. A placement will offer you a first-hand look at what it's like to work for a firm that invests US$11 billion in technology and has a team of over 50,000 technologists globally.
For 2019 there are up to 10 awards available. Each scholarship includes:
- £3,000 per year of study for 3 years (not paid in your placement year)
- a paid industrial placement opportunity in J.P. Morgan's technology department as a Software Engineer
Who is eligible
You must be a first year undergraduate student in one of the following departments:
- Computer Science
- Electronic and Electrical 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 September 2019.
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.
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 If you do not meet this yearly average your award may be withdrawn, subject to final approval from J.P. Morgan.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.
How to apply
Applications are open now and will close on 24 November 2019.
