Construction Innovation Scholarships, funded by the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre and the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, are available to meet the costs of taught postgraduate fees at Edinburgh Napier University.

Open to qualified British students studying full-time, part-time or via distance learning across a wide range of academic disciplines. 
You must be interested in leading innovation within construction and the built environment and willing to work in collaboration with an industry partner to develop solutions to construction challenges as part of your master’s studies. We can help match you with an industry partner. 

There are specific Construction Innovation Scholarship opportunities available for groups underrepresented in the construction industry, especially those identifying as women, BAME and/or with a disability, who meet one or more of these protected characteristics and live in Edinburgh, Fife, East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian and the Scottish Borders. 

Available courses

Any taught MSc, provided you can demonstrate relevance in your studies to innovation in construction and the built environment.


These scholarships are open to UK students only.
