Trio of Yorkshire engineers receive scholarships
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Yorkshire and Humber has awarded three promising civil engineers with a well-respected scholarship - ICE’s QUEST Technician Scholarship.
The scholarships have been given to 28-year-old Elsie Brewster, from York, 36-year-old Tony Harrigan, from Leeds, and 17-year-old Nathan Richmond, from York.
The trio are all part-time students at Leeds College of Building, and Elsie and Tony were fortunate to be presented with their awards by the Institution’s Director General, Nick Baveystock.
The QUEST Technician Scholarship provides support to students who are studying courses that could lead to a professional qualification as an Engineering Technician.
Elsie and Nathan are both employed as assistant technicians at Tata Steel Projects, in York. Tony is a transport planner at SCP in Leeds.
Applicants had to provide a written personal statement, qualification information and references from employers. The successful trio were prompted to apply for ICE’s renowned scheme after performing well throughout their studies.
Mr Baveystock said: “Elsie, Tony and Nathan are very worthy recipients of the QUEST Technician Scholarships. It is vital that we recognise and support the efforts of those who have chosen to join our industry and enhance their skills through studies at such educational centres as the Leeds College of Building.
“All at the ICE wish these students, and all who are working towards a career in civil engineering, the best of luck for a successful future.”
Ian Billyard, Principal at Leeds College Building: “It’s fantastic that LCB students continue to be recognised in this way by the ICE. Every year we enter our talented students into the rigorous selection process and to have so many chosen year after year for the scholarships is a reflection on their abilities and the support they receive from college staff.”
