The City and Guilds College Association are Awarding money again to students who are active in sport and social activities.
The Alumni of the City and Guilds College Union

The City & Guilds College Association (the alumni of the City & Guilds College, which is now part of the faculty of engineering) are looking for applicants for their newly renamed Student Activity Awards. The awards are for students who have shown that they are active in the social or sporting aspects of college life and there is at least one award per department.

More about the CGCA

Alumni keep the name of the old college in much the same way that the union has kept the phrase ?City and Guilds College? in its title. The trust fund that awards are made from, the Old Centralians? Trust, is even more historic as it refers back to 1907 when most of what now makes up the Faculty of Engineering was called the Central Technical College.

The Alumni Association are very active in organising social events and are constantly looking for new ways of linking to the current students, such as appointing alumni reps to departments.

Until Richard Sykes came to Imperial the Royal School of Mines had always been very separate to the rest of Engineering and for this reason the awards are not open to the miners (although the RSMA do similar awards). The CGCA also has other awards and bursaries available, most also available to the RSM students, with hugely varied criteria.
