Karan’s scholarship success

One of last summer's QE leavers has secured a prestigious £10,000 scholarship from the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE).

Karan Dewnani (OE 2006-2013) will receive £2,500 annually during his four-year Civil and Structural Engineering MEng course at Sheffield University and undertake paid work placements with a sponsor company during the summer vacation.

The ICE’s QUEST Undergraduate Scholarships are awarded to high-calibre students who have the potential to excel as civil engineers.

Under the terms of the scholarship, Karan has to promote civil engineering in schools. In a letter to QE, he wrote: “I will be more than happy to come to School and talk more about my course and scholarship to any prospective students who choose a career in civil and structural engineering.”

He also thanked the Headmaster and the Sixth Form team “without whose help and guidance I would not have succeeded in achieving this honour from ICE”.

Since Karan received a direct scholarship from ICE and not from a partner company, he has the flexibility to choose which company he will target for his summer placements.
