100 students interviewed for scholarships worth up to £12,000

More than 100 students were last week interviewed by some of the biggest names in civil engineering this September at the annual Institution of Civil Engineers’ (ICE) QUEST undergraduate scholarship selection day.

The QUEST (Queen’s Jubilee Scholarship Trust) scholarships were founded in the Jubilee year of 1977, and have given scholarships to promising engineering students and others wanting to further their education.Students must outline why he or she believes they deserve the award. QUEST chairman professor Adrian Long said: “The QUEST selection day is about finding the future leaders of civil engineering. The QUEST Scholarship is offered to ensure that students with the potential to excel in industry are supported and do so.” Next, the partner companies rank the students, and the students indicate which firms they would like to be partnered with. Successful QUEST scholars were notifi ed in October and applications will open for the 2008 award in the New Year. The QUEST scheme is aimed at students who are about to go to university for the first time to study a course approved by the Joint Board of Moderators,which approves and accredits course content.
This is formed jointly by the ICE, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Institution of Highways and Transportation, and the Institute of Highway Incorporated Engineers. QUEST pays up to £3,000 per year, with a maximum of £12,000 for the duration of the course. This year a new sponsor, ConstructionSkills, comes on board, and aims to align the QUEST award scheme with its own Inspire Scholarship Award.
