IET launches bursary to support students and apprentices
The IET has launched the IET Engineering Horizons Bursary, which is aimed at students and apprentices who have overcome obstacles or personal challenges to pursue an engineering education. The bursary is a new addition to the IET’s portfolio of awards and scholarships and the first of its kind open to both apprentices and students.
“These awards send a clear message that a career as an engineer or technician is a choice for anyone regardless of their background, gender, financial or personal circumstances,” notes Faye Banks, chair of the Engineering Horizons Bursary Panel.
Bursary award winners will receive £1,000 per year for the duration of their degree course or apprenticeship (up to four years), free IET membership and support, and when ready to apply, the application fee for their technician professional registration. Bursary holders will also be expected to become engineering ambassadors, promoting the different routes into engineering and professional registration.
The IET’s Scholarships Committee has established a panel of experts to assess applications and has identified funding to award at least six bursaries this year, while a fundraising initiative for this new award gets under way.
“We have an established scholarships scheme called Diamond Jubilee for students studying on an IET-accredited degree course after completing their A levels, which has grown substantially thanks to ongoing fundraising efforts,” said IET awards and prizes manager Linda Deleay. “We are pleased to launch the Engineering Horizons Bursary scheme for people who choose the vocational or apprenticeship route to an engineering career. As with the Diamond Jubilee scheme, we also hope partners will join us in contributing funds to expand the scheme over the coming years.”
The scheme is unique in that it will support apprentices as well as students, recognising that there are many different routes into an engineering career.
“The criteria will not be specific about which qualifications will be eligible as long as the applicant is accepted onto an IET-approved apprenticeship scheme or an IET-accredited degree,” says Deleay. “They are likely to have vocational qualifications such as BTEC Nationals, HNCs, City and Guilds and Diplomas. Qualifications such as the Access to Higher Education Diploma and foundation years offered by universities will also be eligible,” she notes.

"As the dust settles after the referendum result, we consider what happens next. We also look forward to an international summer of sport."
