The scholarship will fully fund an undergraduate degree at Birmingham City University’s Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment, which covers 29 different courses ranging from civil engineering to video game design and film production.
Rebecca Delmore, commercial director at Millennium Point, said: “We want to connect with emerging talent, particularly those in our more marginalised communities and offer up a life-changing opportunity to an outstanding and worthy recipient.
All finalists will receive bespoke support to develop employability skills and get access to further opportunities in their industry going forward.
