A NEW mentoring scheme will be launched at the Imperial College London to tackle the under-representation of black students.
The scheme will offer a £5m scholarship to offer to a new intake of students as part of a wider £20m diversity scheme.
Figures show that out of more than 10,000 undergraduates at Imperial, only 235 are black. The university, one of the world’s top science institutions, says that it wants to at least double that number.
