The Hingston Scholarship is available to UK-born students for postgraduate master's study, in the area of manufacturing. The award is between £5,000 and £10,000 toward tuition fees. The amount will be decided by the award panel.

The Hingston Scholarship was established in 2018 with a generous gift from John and Jenny Hingston. John Hingston graduated in 1968 with an MSc Industrial Engineering and Administration. John feels a strong sense of gratitude for the opportunities that he benefitted from at Cranfield at the time, and the purpose of The Hingston Scholarship is to assist others to benefit in the same way. The Scholarship contributes towards the tuition fee of study for UK-born applicants on Full-Time Manufacturing- or Engineering-related Masters Programmes at Cranfield University.
