Quest to treble scholarships

ICE news

THE ICE has launched a £5M fundraising campaign to create up to 100 new scholarships for civil engineering students.

New ICE president professor Adrian Long launched the appeal during his presidential address last week, which aims to more than treble the number of scholarships available each year through the ICE-run QUEST (Queen's Educational Scholarship Trust) scheme.

The scheme was relaunched this year in a bid to raise its profile and attract more applications (NCE 19 September).

Now the ICE has set out on a three stage fund raising strategy.

The first phase, now under way, will target 'big hitters' - wealthy firms and individuals closely connected with the ICE - through a fundraising committee formed of industry figureheads.

It is hoped 60% of the target will be raised in this way, before the appeal is widened to the membership at large in mid-2003.
