Why should I study Science, Technology, Maths or Engineering at university?

Discovering the cure to diseases, solving the mysteries of space, finding solutions to climate change and engineering the world's tallest building - these are just some of the breakthroughs that science, technology, engineering and maths graduates are achieving today!

Studying these subjects at university opens up a world of exciting opportunities. Doing a scientific subject at university can help you get a good job which pays well. Employers need more science and engineering graduates and pay them more on average than graduates from other subjects.

The Eliahou Dangoor Scholarships are available for first year undergraduates taking a wide range of exciting courses across the science, technology, maths and engineering areas. From Zoology to Genetics, from Astronomy to Environmental Sciences; from Electrical Engineering to Science Education and from Artificial Intelligence to Aerospace Engineering.

Why have the Eliahou Dangoor Scholarships been created?

The Eliahou Dangoor Scholarships have been created to provide talented students with the  opportunity to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects at the leading universities in the United Kingdom.  The 1994 Group and the Russell Group of universities are the leading research universities who provide students with an outstanding academic experience.  38 institutions will participate in the scheme in 2009/10.

Dr Naim Dangoor came to London as a student from Iraq exactly 75 years ago to study engineering.  Although he returned to Iraq after his studies, he promised himself that if one day he had the means to help others enjoy the same benefit, he would do so.  Dr Naim Dangoor and his family settled in this country in the 1960s, so he would like to give something back to the country which has provided him and his family with welcome, refuge and support.

Dr Naim Dangoor sees the Scholarships as offering the opportunity for some of the best students to realise their full potential.  He feels that support of this kind can help to transform people's lives and the life of the country. He hopes that this will act as an example to others who can provide similar support in the way that this already happens elsewhere.
