IET entries for scholarships

The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) has issued a call for entries for its postgraduate scholarships, part of the IET Ambition Awards.

They include a range of scholarships between £2,500 and £10,000 for outstanding postgraduate students from within the engineering and technology sectors.

This year’s IET Ambition Awards are sponsored by GCHQ, RS Components and Transport for London. Current and prospective postgraduate students studying on engineering or IT programmes only have until 5pm on 28 March 2012 to apply for a postgraduate scholarship. Scholarships range from £2,500 to £10,000.

Postgraduate students produce some really ground-breaking research in the engineering and technology industries, and the IET is committed to supporting these outstanding young prospects. As part of the IET Ambition Awards, these scholarships are designed to help ensure the continual flow of postgraduate talent into the sector by helping to finance their studies so that they can realise their ambitions.

In 2011 the IET provided over £500,000 in awards, prizes and scholarships, to promote excellence and research in the sector, endorse women entering the profession and encourage the next generation of engineers and technicians.
