Architecture and Surveying Scholarship

If your company would benefit from research on any topic related to design or surveying, the Architecture and Surveying Scholarship is for you. It’s a chance to work out what impact emerging trends and changing practices could have on your business, whilst developing one of your employees.

The scholarship was established in 2009. It is funded and supported by The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and The Worshipful Company of Constructors. Successful scholars will be awarded £3,000 to carry out a research project that will benefit the scholar, their company and the industry.
