IGEM’s scholarships and grants scheme has returned for another year, continuing its support to young engineers on a path to a career in the gas industry.
Engineers can apply for the scheme if they can demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of engineering, and how they aspire to apply it.

First Year Undergraduate Scholarship – Available to students currently registered on the first year of an accredited degree, worth up to £6,000 for two years/ Postgraduate Masters Scholarship – Available to exceptional graduates with an accredited BEng (Hons) degree, to enable them to undertake an accredited masters. Each scholarship is worth up to £6,500 for one year’s full-time study. Student grants – Up to £1,500 can be awarded per academic year and can go towards living costs, travel, accommodation, course materials, software, books, etc. Available to applicants on accredited, engineering-related undergraduate degree or masters courses.
Ross McCart, IGEM professional development officer, says: “With one-fifth of the utilities sector’s 500,000-strong UK workforce due to retire in under a decade, IGEM is keen to do everything it can to close the skills gap and make engineering the career of choice for more young people.
“These scholarships have been made possible by the generosity of past IGEM members and are designed to support people who may become the gas engineers of the future.”
