Decipher, a company of construction experts who help businesses simplify the complexities of construction, has partnered with the University to launch a scholarship to help increase the progress of students in the sector.
Decipher QS Scholarship
The Decipher QS Scholarship launched at the beginning of the 2021/22 academic year to provide a student from a low-income background with a non-repayable award for the duration of their degree. The Scholarship not only provides financial support, but was designed to help increase access in Quantity Surveying pathways for students in the North West.
Paul Gibbons - CEO, Decipher:
"Investing in our people has always been a core value at Decipher. This Scholarship allows us to take the next step by investing in the future of the industry. In launching the Decipher QS Scholarship, we can encourage talented individuals to join our industry. Not only that, but by providing financial support to those who need it, means we can make steps towards increasing diversity across the industry. Ultimately, we believe this will lead to a better industry for all and I am proud that Decipher is able to contribute in our small way."
Conor - Decipher QS Scholar, BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying
"Without the bursary, I would need to continue travelling more and working long hours. The possibility of making time for voluntary roles I am interested in wouldn't be financially possible, but with this financial support I can. I want to excel in my career in quantity surveying and continue to progress and grow wherever this career takes me, which is exciting."
Donor-funded scholarships not only provide our students with financial support but are a moment of recognition and a vote of confidence that we believe in their potential. We would like to thank Decipher for their generous support and we look forward to the opportunites this incredible gift will create for our students.
