Scholarships On Offer

Francis Mathew Stationers’ Company Scholarships are offered again this year to young persons in the printing, publishing and paper industries and associated trades.  These scholarships were established as a memorial to Francis Mathew, a former manager of The Times.

Up to four scholarships may be awarded annually, normally of £750.  The scholarships are intended to help those aged between 18 and 35, of British nationality, and who are either employed in or are intending to make a career in the industries.  The aim is to enable the winners to travel so as to gain experience and further their knowledge of the industries at home and abroad.

Awards will be made after interviews in London in early 2010.

The application deadline is November 30th. Click here to download the application form.
