The Rumford Bursary

The Rumford Bursary was first presented to the runner-up to the H & V News Graduate of the Year Award in October 2006. This was originally an idea by a Rumford Club member, Bob Wilkinson, who donated the £500 prize. Another Club member donated £500 for the 2007 Bursary.

The Frank Dennis Trust also donated £5,000 to ensure that the Rumford Bursary can continue for many years to come.

At the CIBSE ASHRAE Graduate of the Year Award held at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers each year, the two runners-up are presented with cheques by the Rumford Chair.

Prize winners are invited to attend a Rumford Club dinner as guests of the Club.
