Diamond Jubilee Scholarships
Congratulations to our 2013 scholarship winners
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) can today reveal that £2 million is being invested in the UK’s up and coming engineering talent.
The Diamond Jubilee Scholarships have been awarded to 540 of the UK’s top students from 382 schools who are starting an engineering degree at 27 UK based universities this autumn.
The students are the first cohort to win these prestigious scholarships and had to meet the criteria of achieving 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 join an IET accredited engineering or technology degree course in Autumn 2013.
Each student will be receiving an IET scholarship of £1000 per year, up to a maximum of £3000 for Bachelors students and £4000 for MEng students.

Diamond Scholarships for 2014
The Diamond Jubilee Scholarships will be an annual scholarship scheme.
Please keep checking the website for next year’s criteria which will be coming soon. Applications for the scholarships will be open in January 2014.
All applicants for IET Undergraduate Scholarship and Grants, including IET Diamond Jubilee Scholarships, must be on an IET accredited undergraduate degree programme.
The IET accredits programmes across a diverse spectrum, including electrical, electronic, manufacturing, mechanical, systems and software engineering and specialist areas such as bioengineering, nanotechnology and renewable energy.
Some engineering courses may be accredited by professional bodies or Institutions other than the IET, this can be checked via the Engineering Council’s accredited courses search.
The absence of IET accreditation could mean that the programme is accredited by another professional body, it is going through the re-accreditation process or the university has not asked the IET to accredit the programme.
