Rees Jeffreys Road Fund running Road MSc bursary scheme again

Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Trustees have announced that they will once again be running the Transport MSc Bursary programme for the academic year 2024-5.

The Trustees are hoping to encourage more applications to study for a transport related MSc – both from people who are new to the transport sector and people who are currently employed in the sector who may wish to add to their professional skills or knowledge.

Bursaries are available for a range of transport related topics and are aimed at students who would not be able to afford to study without the Bursary. There will be up to eight bursaries of £10,000 each awarded for the academic year starting 2024-25. The Bursaries are released in stage payments over the period of study.

The Fund is looking to provide financial support for people with a strong commitment to developing a new career or further developing their existing career centred in the Transport Sector in the UK. Applications are welcome from students of any age and background, including applicants who are mid-career. Bursaries are available for both full and part time studies and are intended to cover course fees.

People interested in studying for a transport related MSc should initially speak to one of the 13 universities who run transport related MSc programmes. They are listed on our website Bursaries Available from Rees Jeffreys – Rees Jeffreys Road Fund The deadline for universities to apply for a Bursary on behalf of students is 10am Friday 28th June 2024.

Chair of the Trustees Ginny Clarke said, “As Trustees of the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund we believe roads really matter to all of us, whether we’re making journeys as drivers, passengers, pedestrians or cyclists. The professionalism, knowledge and expertise of those working in the highways sector is therefore vital to ensure that roads work well for everyone.”

“We are keen to continue the life work of our founder William Rees Jeffreys by supporting today’s highways professionals to have access to high quality professional education, by funding once again the MSc bursary scheme and look forward to hearing how this supports people to progress their careers.”
