Pete Woolaghan, Chairman of The REACT Foundation, said:
'Here in West Cumbria we have some very good young engineers. We hope to encourage them to study, gain their degree and return to the area to develop their careers. As a result of a recent survey of young West Cumbrian engineers, the Board of Trustees has found one of the biggest concerns about going off to university is the high costs of fees.
We need to help and encourage these vibrant, ambitious and bright engineers to bring home their potential and create opportunities to really make a difference to themselves and society'.
A School's Trophy will also be awarded to the Foundation's bursary winner's school in recognition of it producing the winning candidate.
