IET Futures Fund
We raise money to support the next generation of engineers to find solutions to our most pressing problems.
Because the world faces unprecedented challenges and engineers are needed to solve them
We are committed to working to engineer a better world.
Match-funding during Bob Cryan's year as IET President.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the IET Futures Fund programmes. We are excited to be matching every donation during Bob Cryan's presidency. Our target from 1 October 2022 to 30 September 2023 is £500,000.
Together we can transform lives.
89% of our awards alumni (2017-2021) are employed in the engineering and technology sector
Because ours is a wonderful profession and we are passionate about helping others to join it.
Together, we can make a difference; today, tomorrow and long into the future.
Because university isn’t the only route into engineering
“The Award helped me to invest in Electrical and Electronic books, pay for extra training courses for CPD, commuting costs and a laptop so that I could study outside of work.
In the future, I would like to work toward becoming a Chartered Engineer. I am passionate about promoting engineering to the younger generation, especially because this is something I lacked when I was growing up.”
Because engineering should be accessible to all
“The children’s confidence, friendships, problem solving skills, stamina and resilience have all increased beyond belief.
This was such a transformative experience for our primary school from a small town in Cornwall.”
Because one STEM event changed my career path
“The Faraday Challenge Day gave me so much more confidence as well as teaching me a few tech skills along the way.
Looking back, this was a key milestone in helping me to discover a subject that I love and really changed my perception of computing from something that was a hobby to something that could be a career.“
40,000+ children each year will experience a STEM event delivered by the IET
Because one STEM event can change a career path and with your support we can bring our programmes to a wider audience.
Making a difference
“If we 'support today' they may 'deliver in the future'.
There is a hidden talent in all children - let STEM initiatives and other inspiration help show them the way.”
