University bursaries and scholarships


Island Roads in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council, as part of the commitment to generating employment on the Island, is offering a bursary of 1000 per annum to two students from the Island to study business, engineering or environment related degrees at university.

In addition Island Roads parent company, the Eurovia Group, has two places available on its Civil Engineering and Quantity Surveying Scholarship Programme for students. The scholarship is worth £1500 per annum and provides training (paid) for 8 weeks during the summer vacations and an industrial year placement should the course include one.  It is the intention that the scholarship scheme, providing both parties agree, will lead to an employment opportunity with Eurovia on their accredited Graduate Development Programme following completion of their studies.

Eligibility to apply

  • Students whose main residence is on the Isle of Wight
  • Currently studying in a state funded school, college or via an apprenticeship provider
  • Have a confirmed offer from a UK university, for an appropriate course
  • Students applying for the engineering scholarship will have to have been accepted onto an MEng degree programme at university.
