Our Ground Sun Scholarship for students starts now – get in touch
We believe in a greener future and want to support tomorrow’s engineers, ecologists and environmental specialists and so want to give something back. We believe that it is very possible for the next generation of individuals to make the world a better place through greener construction practices.
With this in mind we have created the Ground Sun Scholarship for Green Living to encourage and entice students of the future and create a more environmentally friendly construction culture. You can see our helical piles and Ground Source Heat Pump services to get an idea of what we offer.
Each year, Ground Sun’s Scholarship for Green Living will provide a student with a scholarship if they show exceptional promise and showcase an interesting and exciting way to make greener buildings and energy creation a reality.
To be in with a chance of winning our £1000 scholarship we want you to create a 2-3 minute video or a 600 word blog post discussing what you think the biggest opportunities and threats are in the green domestic building space. We want you to discuss different forms of domestic energy production and what motivates you to be greener and more sustainable.
The winner will receive £1000 towards higher education.
