    Reece Foundation Engineering Scholarships

    The Newcastle-based Reece Foundation is generously offering two fully- funded sixth form places at the Royal Grammar School from September 2018. Applications for places are invited from boys and girls in maintained secondary schools who will be completing their GCSEs in summer 2018. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a strong interest in, and aptitude for, engineering as a future career; will be predicted A or A* grades in maths and science subjects at GCSE; and will be prepared to follow A levels in STEM subjects (sciences, technology, mathematics) which will equip them for application to university engineering courses.

    The Reece Foundation endowment will cover all school fees at the RGS: the only “extras” are school dinners, music lessons and extracurricular trips etc. The school provides all books, exam entry fees and a host of extra-curricular activities within the school fee.

    Offers of Reece Foundation Scholarships will be made after interview by the school at which candidates will be expected to demonstrate their commitment to a future in engineering. Reece Foundation Scholarships are not means-tested: however, if more than two candidates satisfy the school’s criteria for entry on to this scholarship programme it reserves the right to give precedence to boys and girls from low-income homes.
