Scholarships and awards

If you are looking to study mechanical engineering or are ready to progress your career in the industry, we’re here to reward you.

We are committed to developing, inspiring and encouraging engineers at every stage in their career, with practical, financial help. Each year, we support the educational and development needs of students, graduates and members with grants totalling some £400,000.

Our scholarships can enable young students or apprentices to study engineering at university. For graduates and working engineers, our prestigious awards reward academic excellence and professional innovation, recognising the achievements of world-class engineers whose ideas and innovations are truly making changes for the good on a global scale.
