Our 2021 Scholarship Round-up
This year we had 105 UWE Student participate in our 2021 summer scholarship programme. This has been our biggest Scholarship yet and we are so proud of our team and all our scholars for their achievements throughout the 8-week scholarship.
So, what did we get up to? Each scholar had their very own advisor and mentor to aide them in their business journey over the 8 weeks of the scholarship. They were each paired up with a mentor who of which suited their personal business needs. This may have been marketing, finance, confidence or pitching! Have a read below to see how our mentors and scholars got on!
“Your students could not be more polite, I really enjoyed hearing about their fantastic project and hope that I can assist them in some small way. They are a credit to UWE.” — Scholarship Mentor
“I have just had a fantastic session with my mentor. She was very interested in my product, and she gave me loads of great advice as how to go about developing it in terms of software/hardware, branding, and mentioned about funding that I could apply for. Having that kind of feedback from a professional has given me loads of confidence, inspiration and channels to focus my energy into the project” — 2021 Scholar
Not only did our scholars have access to a mentor and advisor throughout the 8 weeks, but they also had access to a variety of workshops from both the UWE enterprise teams and industry professionals. Some of our workshops included Market research, Sales, Data Analysis and Sustainability! The amazing Kevin Mansell-Abell gave our students a great marketing workshop, have a look below at some amazing reviews of workshop!
“I feel a lot more confident and equipped to handle the marketing aspect of my business now and I have more of a plan to take my business forward. This added confidence has given me a boost as a businesswoman and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings” — Summer Scholar 2021
Our scholars also had access to an amazing Microsoft teams Channel where they could network and share ideas surrounding their start-ups!
“The amount of support and encouragement on Teams has been amazing — it has definitely kept me focused and motivated throughout the 8 weeks. The amount of information being shared is awesome! I have learnt so much in a short space of time, from people who are experts and willing to share their knowledge.” — Summer Scholar 2021
Well done to all of our amazing Scholars! We are so proud.
