The Awards Scheme

One of the primary aims of the Company is the promotion of education, arts, science and technology and, in particular, the promotion of skills and associated professional activities in Wales. The Company achieves this aim by making Awards to the young people of Wales and the following is a summary of the Awards currently provided for by the Company.

The aim of the awards is to establish a substantial award to a young person (generally under 30) who has demonstrated a major contribution to the arts science or technology for the benefit of the people of Wales and who satisfies the criteria of the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales to recognise exceptional personal achievement.

The Achievement Award is intended for a Welsh person who has already received universal acclaim within his or her sphere.

Objective of the Award

To enable an outstanding young person, who has graduated from an academic institution or qualified with a professional body, to further their academic or professional development by undertaking an innovative project or participating in a high level course or conference, preferably with an international element.

The MERIT AWARD is intended to encourage and recognise a Welsh person who is mid-career and has already achieved rather more than their peers but will probably rise to greater heights in due course.

These Awards are principally aimed at graduate and post-graduate students to enable them to further their careers and to develop their talents by undertaking a project or further study abroad.

These Awards recognise and encourage skills traditionally associated with Livery Companies and assist apprentices in their chosen vocation.

A small number of bursaries have been established with specific colleges across Wales and are designed to help students of ability with financial help to progress to further or higher education.

The Schools Awards are made to a number of selected schools on a rolling programme to support and encourage pupils who have both the ability and ambition to continue with their education, usually at a higher level.
