Peter Casey Scholarship recipients 2017This month, we welcomed two new students at Salford University School of the Built Environment to the Peter Casey Scholarship family.

 At the end of their first academic year, a student from the school is chosen on merit to receive the award. Every fourth year, gift aid allows two students to receive the award and this year's recipients were Camille Grimes, studying Quantity Surveying, and Stephen Hellewell, studying Construction Project Management.

This scholarship programme is now in its fourth year and Peter is very proud of the success of all the recipients so far. Stuart Hartley (Quantity Surveying) and John Kelso (Construction Project Management) both graduated with 1st Class Honours, and Stuart Lally (Construction Project Management) is now in his final year.

Peter Casey said this about why he set up the scholarship: "I remember, many years ago now, how difficult it was trying to study and make ends meet. I'm very happy to be able to help the up-and-coming constructors of today by taking some of that pressure away, and I am extremely proud of their achievements so far. I wish the very best of luck to this year's recipients, Camille and Stephen."
