There are a large number of Prizes, Scholarships and Awards available: some are awarded for excellent performance on the course, others are open competitions. Details of all prizes and awards are on the CUED Prizes and Scholarships webpage.
Each year an Arthur Shercliff Travel Scholarship, currently valued at £1,400, is awarded to a member of the Cambridge University Engineering Department, to promote technical visits abroad. The Arthur Shercliff Memorial Trust was set up in memory of a former Head of Department.
UROPs are an opportunity for Cambridge undergraduate students to spend a period of time over the summer assisting with research activities taking place across the spectrum of University Departments.
The scheme is open to any Cambridge University student provided that they have at least one full academic year of their undergraduate course to complete.
UROPs usually have a 10 week duration and there is a bursary payment at the rate of £250 per week.
For full information, including the application procedure, FAQs and a list of available projects see the UROPs homepage.
Students in Parts IA-IIA will be alerted when the initial list of projects offered for the next summer vacation is posted, and further projects will be added as staff propose them.
