Scholarships and grants

Our scholarship programmes and grants support innovation, development and education within the construction industry.

Through this type of experience, the CIOB believes our members can develop their personal and professional expertise and confidence. Furthermore, bringing exciting innovation in the form of best practice, toolkits and methodologies will enhance the sector for the better. 

The Construction Innovation and Quality Scholarship was introduced in 2020 to provide individuals working towards a career in construction with the opportunity to complete work experience or a research project, focussing on new ideas and concepts which could be of benefit to the industry.

The Paul Dockerill Award celebrates Paul Dockerill FCIOB, who passed away suddenly in November 2022. The award reflects his passion for innovation in building safety through mentoring, skills development, and, most importantly, the improvement of fire safety and resident engagement in the UK.
