2015 Diamond Jubilee Scholarship Ceremony
|On 18 February 2015, over 50 Diamond Jubilee scholars from the 2014 cohort gathered on board the HQS Wellington, Victoria Embankment, London to share in their success and receive their certificates from their donors.|
This was the first time that the scholars who had achieved either 3 A’s at A Level, 3 'A' grade Advanced Highers, 5 'A' grade Highers or an International Baccalaureate Diploma at 36 points or above and been accepted on an IET accredited engineering or technology degree course starting in Autumn 2014 had met.
Iris Hutchings, Scholarships Account Manager, opened the ceremony with short introductions to some of the members of the Diamond scholar’s council. Ollie Ford (chair of the group) advised the audience what the group is about and how the scholars could join.
Michelle Richmond, IET Director of Membership and Professional Development gave a very engaging and inspiring speech about the IET.
The presentation of certificates to the scholars followed, with short introductions from the following donors:
BP/IET Faraday Scholarship –Paul Oram, BP

Nigel Fine, IET Chief Executive and Secretary closed the ceremony and congratulated the winners.
There were IET stands from Career Manager, Communities and Communities and IET Campus. The scholars were really enthusiastic when talking to the staff of the IET and clearly wanted to know how to get involved and engage more with what the IET has to offer.
We look forward to the scholars’ progression and careers over the coming years.
