Sustainability scholarship for Southeast Asia built environment professionals

11 March 2020 — Pomeroy Academy and The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), UK, today announced the launch of a new scholarship aimed at supporting Southeast Asia’s next sustainability leaders.

Open to Southeast Asia professionals looking to enrol at Cambridge University’s Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment (IDBE) Master’s degree, the Pomeroy Academy Scholarship for Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment will support one student per year from the Southeast Asia region who can demonstrate their interest in, and commitment to, the design and development of sustainable built environments. The scholarship was created by IDBE alumnus Professor Jason Pomeroy, founding principal of Pomeroy Studio and Pomeroy Academy.

Supported by expert tutors and practitioners from the academia and industry, the IDBE post-graduate programmes offer an interdisciplinary approach to learning for professionals, structured around emerging trends, opportunities and challenges within the built environment, covering sustainability and resilience; health and well-being; energy; efficiency; conservation; heritage; stakeholder engagement; politics; and regulation.

  • Can demonstrate their interest in and commitment to the design and development of sustainable built environments;
  • Have applied for admission to the Master’s via the standard application process and by the published deadline; and
