Published: 28 April 2015
The British Coatings Federation (BCF) is offering a unique scholarship for chemistry graduates interested in pursuing a career in the coatings industry.
Scholarship opportunity offered by the BCF
Starting in September 2015, the scholarship will pay for the tuition fees for the three years of the Masters of Engineering in Formulation Chemistry (Paint, Inks and Coatings) course at the ITECH University in Lyon, France. In addition, the successful candidate will gain practical work experience through three internships with UK coatings manufacturers each summer, lasting 11 months in total, working in a paint or ink company.

The competition for the scholarship challenges applicants to submit a motivational video to describe their ambitions to pursue a career in the Coatings Industry. Applications from interested chemistry graduates will be accepted until the end of June 2015, with the recipient of the scholarship being announced in July. The application process and more information about the degree is available at www.itech.fr/pages/afutureincolour

BCF ceo Tom Bowtell: said: "The ITECH University in Lyon is known by industry for producing the highest level Masters chemistry students for the coatings and ink industries in Europe, and they have a 100% success record in students finding jobs in the industry. Our industry is at the heart of several advanced manufacturing technologies around the world but we have a shortage of skilled R&D staff and an ageing workforce, which means there are strong job opportunities for chemistry students."
