NB. For individuals in employment, funding cannot be used to cover the applicant’s stipend. Applicants who have already obtained a permanent academic position will not normally be considered. In the event of equal quality and limited funds, preference will be given to postgraduates working towards their higher degree (e.g. PhD).
The scholarships are not available to pursue activities overseas as part of a first degree, nor for activities associated with an MEng.
All branches of engineering are eligible for consideration, including computer and software engineering. Applications will also be considered from candidates who have first degrees in related subjects and substantial postgraduate experience in a field of engineering.
Candidates who hold other awards are not excluded from applying.
