Construction innovation and quality scholarship
 What is the Construction Innovation and Quality Scholarship?
The Construction Innovation and Quality Scholarship is designed to provide an invaluable professional development opportunity for those working towards a career in construction management. By completing a research project or enterprising work experience activity, you will gain experience, skills and a complete understanding of just what it takes to succeed in construction management.
The focus of this scholarship is Innovation and Quality. During the scholarship programme, you will be required to complete a research project with a definable, published output that is relevant to the industry. If successful in joining the programme, you will be encouraged and supported to see your idea through to the end, because we believe it will bring a real, tangible benefit to the construction industry. In this way, the scholarship aims to inspire a culture of construction innovation by advancing the science and practice of construction through the adoption of new approaches.
