The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) provides around £1,000,000 in awards, prizes and scholarships every year to celebrate engineering excellence and inspire the next generation of engineers and technicians.

The Engineering Horizons Bursary is aimed at students who have followed a vocational route into engineering or who have overcome personal challenges to pursue an engineering education. Mature students, part-time students and apprentices are also encouraged to apply.

Students and apprentices, who have been accepted on to an IET Accredited degree course in the UK with vocational qualifications or are on the first year of an IET Approved Apprenticeship scheme, are eligible for the award.

Winners will receive £1,000 per year for the duration of their degree course (up to three years for BEng and four years for MEng) or apprenticeship (up to four years). In addition, they gain:

  • free membership at the IET for the duration of their course
  • advice on EngTech or ICTTech registration
  • payment of their technician professional registration application fee.

In return, winners will become ambassadors for the IET and engineering.
