Flowers Scholarship - Design for Industry

The Flowers Scholarship September 2020

The Flowers Scholarship was established in order to support a talented student through their university journey.  Since studying at Northumbria in the 1990s, both Paul and Andrea Flowers have gone onto have successful careers, and they recognise the impact of their time at Northumbria in a personal and professional capacity. The aim of their gift is to transform the life of a Northumbria undergraduate student.

This is an excellent opportunity for a BA Design for Industry student to be awarded £2,000 cash per year during their undergraduate studies. The money can be used to enhance the student’s learning and their overall university experience. As part of the scholarship offer, there will also be the offer of mentorship for the successful applicant.

At Northumbria, we are passionate about bringing together our inspirational courses, forward-thinking staff and innovative students to tackle the challenges of tomorrow. Northumbria champion students who are curious, hardworking and academically gifted. If you are ready to start your university journey with Northumbria, create your best future, and meet the criteria below, then apply now for the Flowers Scholarship.
