A £36,000 university scholarship for aspiring engineers is being introduced by Wiltshire-based Dyson.

The bursary will be available to A-level science or engineering students at Malmesbury School, which is near Dyson's headquarters.

Tim Gilson, Malmesbury School head teacher, said: "It's a fantastic opportunity, potentially life changing for some of our students."

Applications for the scholarship are open until the end of February.

Malmesbury School is a mixed comprehensive with 1,274 pupils, which converted to academy status in August 2011.

The scholarship for 2013 will be awarded by the James Dyson Foundation in mid-March.
