BP Scholarships in Birmingham Business School

The BP Scholarships are intended to encourage and support students with a passion for Economics and Business


BP will offer scholarships to up to 10 students from the University of Birmingham for 2018. Each scholarship is worth up to £9,000, with scholars receiving £3,000 from their second year for the duration of their degree (up to four years). The scholarship is not intended to cover fees but offer students support with the costs of resources and living.

As well as financial support, scholars will be offered unique access to the energy industry. In each year of their degree they will be invited to join a range of activities such as the ‘Scholars Welcome Day’ in year 1 and, a three-day conference in year 2. Both events will enable students to build their understanding of the oil and gas industry and the opportunities that exist to apply their degree subject beyond graduation. In addition, BP will run more informal events on campus and scholars will be invited to join BP as guests at high profile events such as the Ultimate Field Trip Grand Final.
