Mac & Mic offers Scholarship to Glasgow School of Art

Aptly named ‘The Derek Mickel Architecture Scholarship’, after the late chairman of Mactaggart & Mickel Group, the scholarship pays tribute to Derek Mickel’s lifelong connection to design and passion for nurturing young talent.

Launching during the company’s landmark 90th anniversary year, the scholarship is open to all undergraduate students studying in The Mackintosh School of Architecture at The Glasgow School of Art. It will fully fund the selected student throughout their programme of study in Architecture for three years.

Andrew Mickel, chairman of Mactaggart & Mickel Homes and son of Derek Mickel, commented: “Inspired by my father’s vision and passion for architecture, this scholarship has an aim of not only supporting students but also inspiring them, helping them to realise their potential."

The deadline for applications for the Scholarship is Friday 12th June 2015.
