Helping business growth with funded scholarships
Expanding business and research excellence
We are always looking to help businesses grow. To continue doing this, and to expand our research excellence across all subjects, we have invested £3 million into funding our STEAMscholars, 50 PhD students who will carry out innovative research across a range of sectors.
Pushing organisations and academia forward
Our STEAMscholars investment reflects our determination to forge and sustain collaborative partnerships with the region’s ever-growing range of businesses, as well as providing new, vital subject knowledge.
The STEAM scholarships will contribute to Birmingham’s evolving cultural and business landscape, powering research with external organisations and benefitting the West Midlands economy. It will also help our PhD students create new solutions, products and services in a variety of industries.
New investment for new careers
Our STEAM scholarships reflect industry’s demand for highly-rated, innovative experts, and the research excellence our STEAMscholars will provide will ensure organisations are at the forefront of the latest developments. It also shows our desire to further expand and enhance research across the University.
There is an increased importance on postgraduate study, with the Government introducing postgraduate loans and recent research showing those with a postgraduate degree earn £8,000 more a year than those who don't.
