Evaluation of the Engineering Leaders Scholarships scheme


The Royal Academy of Engineering has commissioned CRAC, supported by the Institute of Employment Studies (IES), to undertake an independent evaluation of its premier support programme for engineering students. Engineering Leaders Scholarships aim to accelerate the progression of engineering students in the UK into the engineering workforce and subsequently into leadership positions within it.

The aims of the evaluation are to understand awardees’ experiences, how well the scheme operates and whether the scheme objectives have been met. The evaluation project comprises an online survey with scheme alumni and current awardees, interviews with a sample of these participants, and analysis of scheme management information. A final report should be produced in summer 2021.
