The student who receives the MOY Materials Scholarship will also benefit from the job placement opportunities and on-site training on offer
The MOY Materials scholarship valued at €1,500 is offered annually to a 4th year student of the BSc (Hons) in Architectural & BIM Technology degree programme along with a job placement opportunity.
In 2019, to celebrate their 40th year MOY Materials, an established waterproofing full system provider for the roofing sector, launched a bursary to support architectural technologists of the future with three leading colleges in Ireland and a UK bursary programme for online submissions. The programme is worth in excess of €10,000 of investment and promises to create stronger connections for students as they move from their bursary year into final year and work placements.
MOY are delighted to partner with Waterford Institute of Technology and the college’s 4th year students of architectural technology. In announcing details of the bursary, Máire Henry (Head of Department of Architecture) from WIT said “On behalf of our students we welcome this generous scholarship from MOY Materials who are a successful and forward thinking Irish company”.
MOY are leading the way in supporting architectural technologists of the future and understand the importance of nurturing young talent. “The MOY bursary is our way to celebrate the blossoming talent and help alleviate some of the acknowledged financial hardship students experience towards achieving their goal. A further part of the bursary is a placement with a leading architectural firm which will be matched with the students interest and expertise.
Alongside this will also be onsite training in specialised roofing systems with us at MOY and a selected roofing contractor. We really look forward to developing our affiliation with WIT who we’ve established strong links with over the past number of years through presenting our industry CPD’s to students of architecture” said Cathal Quinn Global Commercial Director.
