ISLAND Roads is offering two bursaries of £1,000 each to students wanting to study business, engineering or environment-related degrees at university.
In addition, Island Roads’ parent company, Eurovia Group, is offering two £1,500 scholarships to study civil engineering or quantity surveying, as well as paid training for eight weeks during the summer holidays, and a year in industry should the course include one.
The scholarships are intended to lead to employment opportunities through Eurovia’s Graduate Development Programme.
Paul Herbert, service director for Island Roads, said "Island Roads is determined, through the highways PFI, to bring as many associated benefits to the community as possible and these bursaries and scholarships are just two examples of this."
The scholarships are only available to students whose main residence is on the Isle of Wight and are currently in state education or an apprenticeship programme, as well as having a confirmed offer from a UK university for an appropriate course.
The engineering scholarship is only available to those who have an offer to study for an MEng degree at university.
The deadline for all applications is noon on September 9.
