The Bill Taylor Scholarship is open to students entering Year 3 of the BEng/MEng Civil and Environmental Engineering course: Year 2 Civil and Environmental Engineering students currently studying at Abertay and set to move into Year 3, and those who hold a conditional or unconditional offer for a place in Year 3 of the course are eligible to apply.
This scholarship is aimed at a well-rounded individual who is interested in working in the civil engineering sector. As well as receiving £1,700 per year (in two instalments), students will be required to take part in the 12-week industry placement (during Term 2 of Year 3) at BEAR Scotland, and a summer placement prior to the start of Year 4.
The summer placement will last a minimum of 8 weeks and will be paid. Students must be flexible in travelling anywhere in Scotland to take up their summer placement. Students who withdraw, fail to achieve the required results to progress on the course or do not complete the allocated 12-week industry placement in Year 3 and summer work placement will cease to receive further money from the Scholarship Fund.
The successful student will also be offered a full time role on the BEAR Scotland graduate training programme, gaining experience in a number of different departments within the company over a 3 to 4 year training programme. Further details including salary will be discussed during the interview process.
Due to the long term commitment required to be on the graduate programme, students must consider this before applying for the scholarship.
BEAR Scotland are offering this scholarship to Abertay University students in memory of Chairman Bill Taylor who passed away in 2016. Bill was also a Dundee Institute of Technology graduate in civil engineering before Abertay became a University.
