Educational Support Fund – SUT ( Deadline 30th June 2024)

Sponsorship for Gifted Students in Marine Science, Underwater Technology, and Subsea Engineering to meet industry’s critical shortage of suitably qualified entrants.

The Society for Underwater Technology’s Educational Support Fund offers sponsorship awards to high calibre undergraduate and postgraduate students, either starting or continuing a degree that embraces at least one relevant component area of marine science, underwater technology or offshore engineering. The postgraduate award is only available to students taking one-year taught MSc courses.

MRes course students are eligible to apply providing they are not being fully funded by an EPSRC grant. A letter from a supervisor at the University to the effect that they are not being fully funded should be supplied before a student can take up any offer of support from us.

The undergraduate scholarship award will continue throughout the entire period, or remaining part, of the degree course, subject to a satisfactory academic standard being maintained, which will be reviewed annually.

The grants are open to any student, irrespective of age or nationality – for study at any course in the world that is approved by the Society. This grant is not open for PhD studies. Doctoral students may apply for the Bil Loth Doctoral Grant.

Entry Qualifications

Postgraduate-Masters candidates should have obtained their undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering or science subject.
