Supporting Local Scholars

Scholarship funding from The Newmarket Festival

Bill Tutte, who was born in Newmarket in 1917 and was educated locally at Cheveley Village School, achieved one of the greatest intellectual feats of World War Two by breaking the extremely complex Lorenz code without ever seeing the machine that generated it. The Bill Tutte Scholarship was set up as a living memorial to his achievements. It is an annual award, open to outstanding candidates from Newmarket and the surrounding area who wish to study Mathematics or Computer Science at University. The winning candidate receives at least £1,000 / year to support his / her university studies for up to 3 years.

The Bill Tutte Scholarship is an incredibly valuable opportunity which offers not only crucial financial support to advance future studies, but also gives  a unique chance to meet experienced academics and industry experts who are more than happy give their support during your studies.

Applying is a perfect way to allow yourself to excel in your work at university, while showing appreciation for a local hero, Bill Tutte.

Without the scholarship, I would not have been able to afford extra materials to support my learning, which would have had an impact on my productivity and would have resulted in it being harder for me to further my understanding of the course content.
