South East Technological University (SETU), in partnership with Glenveagh, along with NUA, its manufacturing brand, have established a ‘Women in Construction STEM Scholarship’ for the benefit of female students enrolled on construction-related courses at SETU’s Department of Built Environment at the University’s Kilkenny Road campus in Carlow.

Scholarships are awarded to successful applicants enrolled on years one and two of the Bachelor’s degree courses in construction management, quantity surveying, and architectural technology.

At a ceremony at SETU’s campus in Carlow on 17 May, a total of four scholarships were announced, with scholarship awarded to successful applicants from each of the three eligible programmes.

Dr Eoin Homan, head of department of Built Environment and Extended Campus, welcomed Paula Voiseux, HR business partner at Glenveagh, for the scholarship presentation. He commented, “At SETU we place huge value on the strong relationship that has developed with Glenveagh. The initiative is significant and a potentially powerful means of promoting more balanced gender representation within a sector that provides a significant contribution to the Irish economy and Irish society in general.”
