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.
Happold Student Scholarship
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.
The application is currently closed. We will be accepting applications for the 2021 programme from November 2020.
The GREEN Program Scholarships
Seeking to provide university students beginning their career the chance to gain hands on, meaningful experience working and learning abroad, The Green Program offers short-term programs in sustainable development. With opportunities across four continents, the program combines invaluable work experience with the chance to contribute to solving some of the world’s most challenging issues.
The Happold Foundation has partnered with the Green Program Scholarship initiative to help sponsor low income, high potential student leaders on a future GREEN program. Recognising the need to ensure that education and work experience is available to all, the scholarships help to support students who would not otherwise be able to afford the program.

Our Organisational Grant is a core funding grant which provides £30,000 per year for a three year period to an organisation that works in areas of human development and the built environment. We are particularly keen to support organisations which approach these areas in ways which address inequality and exclusion.
Funding is unrestricted, and may be spent on anything the not-for-profit organisation deems appropriate and effective.
To be eligible organisations must be able to receive funds into a UK bank account. We can only fund work which is charitable, but you don’t have to be a registered charity to apply to us.
The 2019 Organisational Grant scheme is closed. We will be opening the process again in September 2020. Details on how to apply will be available in September.
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.
