Competititons, Bursaries & Awards

Student members are often entered for competitions such as SkillBuild by their colleges, yet there are other awards and competitions to enter around the country.  Each of them will boost your knowledge, your skills and motivation, and may also boost the likelihood of finding work after College.

It is important to get your entry in very much on time if not early. Whether you are entering for an award, a competition or applying for a bursary (a sum of money donated towards your studies by a local or national charity) make sure you read all the entry requirements and send in the right documents needed for the application process.

Here you can jump to a table of awards and competitions with their dates for entries to be submitted, or to a list of bursaries which you may qualify for and how to apply for them. Your IOC College Liaison Officer is your best support in entering for any award, competition or applying for a bursary.  They can help you to understand what’s needed and by when.  We will update this list from time to time so keep checking back to see what’s new.
