The Millman Scholarship is an undergraduate scholarship programme, run by the Materials Processing Institute in collaboration with the Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers. This scholarship is awarded annually and supports an undergraduate student financially and with mentoring and work experience during their university studies.
Awarded to: Samuel Brown
Samuel is currently in his third year at The University of Sheffield, where he is studying MEng Materials Science and Engineering.
Ashok Kumar Fellowship
The Ashok Kumar Fellowship Scheme is run by the Materials Processing Institute, the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) and the Institution of Chemical Engineers. It is a three-month Fellowship for engineers who have completed a degree at undergraduate Masters level or above, in a discipline related to chemical or process engineering, or have equivalent industry experience. There is one funded Fellowship available with the position based in the UK Parliament, supporting its use of research evidence and assisting POST in providing briefing material for parliamentarians on emerging science topics.
Awarded to: Amber Keegan
Amber is completing a PhD in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at The University of Sheffield, where she is researching the formation pathway of bio-inspired silica, a method of producing silica nanomaterial which is more sustainable than current methods of manufacture.
