Though scholarships are awarded to individuals, many of them involve the companies they work for, with the aim of providing encouragement and support for those companies in developing their people. Providing a scholarship student can be an effective way for firms to contribute to wider industry debates and highlight their specialist knowledge or expertise.
For the individuals, winning a scholarship means that they will have the chance to grow and develop professionally over a 12-month period and to rapidly build a network of professionals outside their own companies. For their employers too, there are great networking opportunities and the chance of positive publicity.
We work with other organisations, including the Worshipful Company of Constructors, the College of Estate Management, and LABC, providing experts to help mentor sponsored students through their research activities.
