IET Postgraduate Scholarship
Two awards of £2,500
To assist IET members in undertaking postgraduate research in the UK.
The IET Postgraduate Scholarships aim to encourage excellence in engineering research at universities in the United Kingdom.
These scholarships are financed from bequests given to the IET by the late Mr P S Hudswell (a former member of the IET) who left a substantial bequest to assist members with research, and the late Joseph William Beauchamp, who left a bequest to assist members with their education.
Two scholarships are available each year. They are worth a maximum of £2,500 each and are tenable for one year.
