The IET’s Future Talent Awards include Launch Scholarships that now replace the Engineering Horizons Bursaries. The scholarships are for £1,500 per year for the duration of the degree or apprenticeship of up to 4 years.  In additional to financial support, the Engineers Company provides each Scholar with a member of the Company as a Mentor.  The Engineers Trust has supported 5 Launch Scholarships in the first year of operation.
