1. GEDC Airbus Diversity Award Applications Now Open!

The GEDC Airbus Diversity Award aims to shine a light on successful projects which have encouraged more young people of all profiles and backgrounds to study and succeed in engineering. The award was developed and funded by Airbus in partnership with the GEDC, the leading international organization for leaders of schools and colleges of engineering education. For this fifth anniversary edition, the award has been placed under UNESCO patronage.


The GEDC Airbus Diversity Award recognizes projects worldwide which have encouraged students of all profiles and backgrounds to study and succeed in engineering.

Applications are now open for projects that have delivered tangible results in encouraging diversity in engineering education among students and/or graduates.

A nominated project representative must submit their applications by 10 July 2017, for the chance to present their work to a distinguished international jury and the audience at the GEDC conference in Niagara Falls, Canada between October 11-13. The project will be awarded 10,000USD, with two runner-ups receiving 1,500USD each to support the communication of their work.
