The Pomeroy Academy Scholarship for Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment (IDBE) serves to support one student per year from the South East Asian region who can demonstrate their interest in, and commitment to, the design and development of sustainable built environments.
The scholarship was created by IDBE (cohort 10) alumnus Prof Jason Pomeroy, founding principal of designers and thought leaders of sustainable built environments, Pomeroy Studio, and sustainability educators, Pomeroy Academy. Pomeroy attributes much of his success with forwarding the green agenda in Asia to the collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to creating sustainable built environment projects which is at the heart of the IDBE programme at the University of Cambridge.
The scholarship is available to IDBE Master’s candidates who:
- are resident in the South East Asian region;
- 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
- have received an offer of admission to the Master’s following the competitive selection process, and fulfil any admission conditions set by the University.
In addition, the following will be prioritised in the competitive selection process for the scholarship:
1. Sustainability leadership potential
2. Academic ability, which will be assessed based on:
- Past academic record
- Quality and relevance of the dissertation proposal submitted
