From funding research projects that strive to change the lives of communities to sponsoring thought leadership events that will map out the next steps for our industry, we provide support for the people who will make a difference.
We offer help to students, engineers and organisations who want to contribute to the advancement of engineering and the impact we can make across the globe.
Whether the project is small and niche or international, if it aims to further the built environment, improve understanding or share knowledge we can help.
If you think we can provide support for your initiative, please apply using one of the forms below.
Our Happold Student Scholarship offers students entering their final year of their undergraduate course scholarship funding plus a paid eight-week summer placement with BuroHappold Engineering. The placement is deliberately aimed at stretching your understanding of the world of engineering in the built environment. We believe this experience gives young engineers invaluable insight into working in the industry and what it is like to work on real life projects.
This application window is now closed. We will be accepting applications from Oct-Dec 2017 for the 2018 Scholarship process.
We offer travel scholarships to students, academics and practitioners to fund their journeys to where they are carrying out their research. We will consider applications from researchers who want to draw comparisons between the built environment from their primary location and another, or if they need to travel to take part in a project or event that shares the Happold Foundation’s values.
The Happold Foundation’s Collaborative Research programme offers grants to fund organisations that wish to carry out research that involves collaboration between different disciplines within the built environment. We are particularly interested to hear about research projects that span two or more countries, or that has benefits for more than one nation.
Get in touch by email at email@example.com to discuss opportunities or submit a proposal for a Happold Foundation Collaborative Research project.
Grants for good ideas
Our Grants for Good Ideas support engineers and organisations who aim to improve the built environment for communities that cannot afford to pay commercial engineering rates. The grant can help fund things like research, education and pilot programmes in communities that are at disadvantage. The projects we get involved with should have a strong engineering element, as well as having the potential to benefit people and their environment.
Please ensure that you have read our guidance notes before applying for a Grant For Good Ideas.
Please note: We will be opening the window to receiving new applications in June – July 2017. To apply, please download an application form and email the completed form with the related documents to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Happold Foundation is committed to helping people working in the built environment to offer their skills to make a difference to those at disadvantage. So, we offer funding for people and organisations that offer their expertise to projects that further human development for no charge.
Our Small Grants scheme offers grants of up to £1000 towards expenses that will help professional engineers offer their time and experience to add value to worthwhile projects. The grants are available to individuals or groups worldwide who feel their project can offer a significant contribution to improving the lives of people and their communities.
