CIOB Scholarship seeks out best sustainability ideas
The Chartered Institute of Building is searching for the best sustainability ideas in construction through its Sustainability Scholarship. Now open for entry successful candidates will receive a £3,000 grant to research a topic relevant to the sustainability agenda.
The scholarship is funded in partnership between the CIOB, the Worshipful Company of Constructors, and the College of Estate Management. It is open to candidates working for companies based in the UK and to qualify each candidate must be nominated by their employer.
Dr Gina Al-Talal, Scholarships and Research Manager at the CIOB said: “Our Scholarships are not just about developing an idea or research they are also about developing the scholar. Recognising exceptional talent in this way improves leadership skills, career progression and extends the knowledge base within the industry.
“Construction can lead the green agenda and help society meet the demand for greater housing, adaptable working environments and smarter infrastructure without compromising future generations. The industry needs green leaders and that is what we are developing in this programme.”
Typically the scholarship lasts for a year and is supported by mentors from the scholarship panel and their own employer. At the end of their year the scholar presents their findings to an audience of industry experts and will see their research disseminated throughout CIOB publications.
For further information and to apply for the 2015/16 Sustainability Scholarship please visit www.ciob.org/scholarships. The closing date for applications is 18 December 2015.
