Postgraduate scholarships and prizes
If you achieved a 2:1 or higher in your first degree and are an IET member (or are interested in becoming a member) then why not apply for an IET Postgraduate scholarship worth up to £10,000? Applications are welcomed from students who are part way through their doctorate degrees. Unfortunately we are unable to accept applications from students who have not yet commenced their postgraduate research or from students undertaking MSc courses. Please note that successful applicants will not be eligible to make a repeat application.
