Final scholarships will be confirmed following the release of A level results and confirmation that the students have been accepted on a degree course to study civil engineering.

The payments will be made in three equal amounts spread over the academic year.


How will the scholarship be monitored?


As your sponsors the Isle of Wight Council in partnership with Vinci Concessions will conduct regular reviews of your progress at University. We will expect to see a progress report at the end of each term and will conduct an annual review with you at the end of each year.

The performance reviews are a necessary condition of your continued funding. Vinci Concessions and Isle of Wight Council reserve the right to withdraw the funding if you do not demonstrate adequate performance, or fail to attend your performance review.
