Peter Casey Scholarship
The Peter Casey Scholarship launched in 2014 to award high-achieving students completing one of our Built Environment degrees with a non-repayable award to support their studies.
"This Scholarship will be a massive benefit for me and be a real weight off my shoulders. The Scholarship will allow me to upgrade from my old-fashioned computer equipment which currently causes problems during lectures and accessing software required for the course.
I would like to thank you for making this Scholarship possible. The generosity of any donor is commendable but to be chosen to receive this from a leader of such an established group in the industry is an honour."
"I am very grateful to have received the Peter Casey Scholarship during my first year which really gave me confidence. To get that recognition at such an early stage in my studies was absolutely amazing and I think really has helped propel me throughout the years."
"The Scholarship funding has enabled me to purchase module textbooks, upgrade my laptop and set up a home office, which has been pivotal in achieving the high grades I recently have, especially during this pandemic.
It gives me the utmost confidence knowing that The Casey Group is fully supportive of my studies which allows me to focus purely on my education. I couldn’t be more thankful for this opportunity."
"This Scholarship has enabled me to devote more time to my studies and it has increased my academic performance. The last three years at University have been pretty hard as I have had to work, study, and take care of my child and I really would have found it much harder to perform as well without your support. It is good to receive recognition and support from you for the hard work I have put into my studies. Thank you!"
"The Scholarship has offered so much more than monetary support during my time here. The opportunity to get to know you … and the wider Casey Group has been incredibly rewarding and is something that will stay with me as I look back with fond memories. I can honestly say that if future scholars experience only half of what I have, then it will be extremely worthwhile."
"Thank you for sponsoring such an award. For someone like myself that has spent over 20 years within the construction industry and who has a genuine love for my job and profession, it is so reassuring to realise there are self-made men, like yourself, that obviously feel the same and are wiling to invest, support, and encourage the next generation of construction professionals."
Our mission at Salford is to transform lives, stimulate discovery and help our students to realise their potential, and we would like to thank Peter Casey for his incredible generosity. The scholars have been incredibly honoured to meet you over the years and your story is a true inspiration for them as hard work really can lead to a successful career. Thank you!
