From Sponsoring University Teams To Building Tomorrow

Accu is excited to announce the launch of our new scholarship program ‘Building Tomorrow’. Built to offer prospective - and current - university students the opportunity to take their engineering careers to the next level, our new scholarships will provide substantial financial support to help them during their studies.

Empowering innovation and progress is at the heart of everything we do. For years we have supported students who share our passion for engineering, helping them to develop their skills across multiple disciplines, including Aerospace, Motorsport and Hyperloop transportation.

From working closely with student-led teams competing in established contests such as the iMechE Formula Student competition, to presenting guest lectures on high performance fasteners at universities, Accu is proud to support the engineers and leaders of tomorrow.

That's why we've created the ‘Building Tomorrow’ scholarship program, to help with funding for engineering degrees, so students can focus on advancing and deepening their knowledge in their chosen field.

How Accu Will Support Undergraduates And Postgraduates?

The Building Tomorrow program was initially launched in April 2023 to offer 2 scholarships, with both undergraduate and postgraduates engineering students alike able to apply for the awards.

We've teamed up with Blackbullion, a leading financial wellbeing platform for young people, to offer 2 scholarships; one for Undergraduate and one for Postgraduate Engineering Students.

The ‘Building Tomorrow’s Visionaries’ scholarship is designed to help kickstart the prospective careers of undergraduate engineers, whilst the ‘Building Tomorrow’s Leaders’ award will provide a funding boost to engineers working on their postgraduate studies.

Accu scholarship winners will also receive a £100 gift balance for use at to purchase components needed to build any equipment, create working prototypes or to complete assemblies for their own personal projects.

On top of this, the award winners may be offered paid internship opportunities, to gain hands-on experience within the industry and learn how Accu utilises the latest Industry 4.0 technology to support innovators with rapid delivery of components.

Please note: The Accu Postgraduate Scholarship (“Building Tomorrow’s Leaders”) is currently unavailable - please be sure to follow Accu on social media for all the latest updates on further opportunities.
