Learning changes lives and we would like to help.

Angus Energy plc has established a yearly scholarship fund of £10,000 per year to support students from Bognor Regis and the surrounding community to undertake further academic studies beyond secondary school.

Whatever you are hoping to study, Level 3 or above, from NVQs to your Doctorate you can apply for a scholarship which could pay you up to £10,000 towards your costs. The number and value of scholarships awarded from the fund will vary each year.


Our first employee, Bruce Watt, passed away at the age of 46, leaving a family and two young children. The scholarship fund, has been named in his memory. Bruce’s daughter Emily said – “My Dad really valued education, both for the betterment of self and for the future. He loved taking opportunities and worked hard to help others. He would be pleased to know that people are being given the chance to follow their dreams.”

“The Bruce Watt Memorial scholarship was not one I felt particularly motivated to apply for, having just experienced a mental health crisis, followed by the announcement of a global lockdown. However, thanks to my English teacher’s encouragement, I did, and as a result am now confident in saying that being awarded the scholarship has truly transformed my first year university experience and enabled me to reach my full potential academically, studying a course I am fascinated by daily, at a university I adore!” – Kamila

“The Bruce Watt Memorial Scholarship was invaluable to me in allowing me to continue my studies. The trustees were extremely generous in their contribution and all correspondence was timely, friendly and informative. I am confident without their support I would not be in the position I am in now in being able to pursue my dream career.” Adam
