J.P Morgan investing in our students

J.P. Morgan – a world leader in financial services – has launched a new technology scholarship programme for students at the University of Bath.

The Winning Women in Technology: J.P. Morgan scholarships programme will support 10 scholars per year, studying Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the University.

The programme, which is unique to Bath, hopes to encourage more students to excel in STEM subjects.

Successful applicants will receive some financial support for three years of their studies and an offer for an Industrial Placement in the firm’s technology department.
