Morris Lubricants fuelling the ambitions of future engineering leaders

One of Britain’s leading independent oil blenders is fuelling the career ambitions of future leaders in science, technology and engineering.

 

Shrewsbury-based Morris Lubricants is a member of the United Kingdom Lubricants Association (UKLA) which has awarded four scholarships through the Arkwright Scholarships Trust.

 

Two of the scholars, Kate Brydon and Cora Lowe, will spend time being mentored and learning about the lubricants industry at Morris Lubricants as part of their scholarship over the next two years.

 

UKLA/Arkwright Scholarships act as a beacon to the most talented students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects. They help to ensure that high-potential young people stay engaged in their careers in STEM subjects.

 

Through active engagement with leading companies operating in the lubricants industry, scholars are encouraged to pursue science or engineering careers in the sector in future.

 

This year’s scholars come from educational backgrounds in leading schools across England and they were chosen for their outstanding academic record, high potential in STEM subjects and leadership qualities.

 

The scholarships support the students through their sixth form studies and encourage them into top universities. They comprise an annual financial award to each scholar and their school and a range of enrichment activities over the next two years, such as mentoring and industry visits to host companies that enhance experience of engineering in a real-world context.

 

Highly regarded by universities and industry, the scholarships are supported by leading companies including Caterpillar, Jaguar Land Rover, Microsoft Research and Rolls-Royce.

 

Andrew Goddard, managing director of Morris Lubricants, said: “The lubricants sector thrives on innovation and technical excellence in product formulation and manufacture.

 

“The UKLA/Arkwright Scholarship will help to support the delivery of these key capabilities which are so critical for our organisation in meeting rising customer expectations, increasing regulatory standards and supporting us to compete effectively in an increasingly globalised marketplace.”

 

David Wright, Director General of the UKLA, said: “It is incredibly important for our sector to be able to attract tomorrow’s generation of leading scientists, engineers and technologists which are so essential for the continued well-being of our industry. The scholarship plays an important role in this key aim.”
