About the Surrey/ICE Scholarship 2022 entry

This scheme is a collaboration between the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), our University and a broad range of leading companies in the civil engineering industry and is open to numerous suitable students every year.

All successful applicants are carefully matched with a suitable company mid way through their first year.

In return, students will spend a paid period training with them over the summer vacation at the end of each academic year.


The main benefits of this scholarship are:

  • A bursary worth almost £2,000 with salaried training in each year of study
  • The chance to integrate industrial training into academic study
  • A fast-track route to employment upon graduation and chartered engineer status.

"I was part of the Surrey ICE Scholarship scheme. This meant that at the time of joining Mott MacDonald as a graduate civil engineer, I’d already had 16 months of experience there. Without that scheme and the links Surrey has with industry, I don’t think I’d be sitting in this job today!"
