Welcome

One of the projects supported by GU68 in November 2020 was UGRacing. This is the car entered in the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Formula Student 2021 event held at Silverstone, where UGRacing achieved a best ever result of 8th place overall, to retake the Scottish Formula Student crown. In addition, the Electric Vehicle Team finished joint third out of 65 teams in the Engineering Design category. There is more information on the Awards page.

About the GU68 Engineers Trust

GU68 Engineers Trust was established by the 1968 Engineering Graduates of Glasgow University to make awards to students studying Engineering at the University of Glasgow. Each year, the Trust makes a number of Awards to assist with the costs of course projects which are normally expected to demonstrate a contribution to practice or research in one of the branches of engineering.

The Trust currently aims to provide a contribution to the short-term needs of a project being carried out by an individual student or a group of students, rather than substantial programmes of research. The Trust is not intended to be a general hardship fund, as other sources of such funding are already available.

Please note that applications can only be accepted from current registered undergraduate or postgraduate students of Engineering at the University of Glasgow, including students of Product Design Engineering based at Glasgow School of Art.

Applicants studying at other institutions or studying other subjects are not eligible. If you are unsure, please use this form to email us.

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee, there is more information and an application form on the Invitation to be considered as a Trustee.
