The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust (The LRET) is an independent charity whose principal purpose is to support advances in transportation, science, engineering and technology education, training and research worldwide for the benefit of all. It focuses on four categories:
• Pre-university education: through appropriate organisations (but not individual schools), promotes careers in science, engineering and technology to young people, their parents and teachers.
• University education: provides funding for undergraduate and MSc scholarships and awards at selected universities and colleges (does not fund students directly)
• Vocational training and professional development: supports professional institutions, educational and training establishments working with people of all ages.
• Research: funds existing or new centres of excellence at institutes and universities.
