CIOB Scholarship for talented QS – 17/10/13

Ben Pearson, Assistant QS at Henry Boot Construction, has won a coveted Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Fund Scholarship.

Granted for academic excellence and leadership skills to bright, motivated and ambitious individuals who show potential to succeed in the construction industry, scholarships are awarded to one student from each CIOB accredited university. The award is intended to provide financial study support during the student’s final year of study.

In his first two years at Sheffield Hallam University, Ben achieved good marks and told judges that if he were successful, the scholarship would enable him to meet professionals throughout the industry and establish key contacts.

Explains Ben: “Working with HBC has already given me a full year of industrial knowledge and experience. Staff who are part of the CIOB have really helped me during my placement and winning the scholarship will enable me to continue my professional development whilst supporting me throughout such a crucial year of my studies.”

“Ben is a well deserved winner of this CIOB scholarship. He has a bright future ahead of him in the construction industry and we’re proud to have him on our team.”
