UTS x RCC Scholarship Alumni ‘Get Together’

UTS x RCC Scholarship Alumni ‘Get Together’

We work hard to provide future generations with opportunities for growth and positive change – as such, supporting young women as they enter the construction industry is something we take seriously.

As part of this commitment, RCC have developed a unique program with UTS to recognise and empower high-achieving young females pursuing careers in STEM – the UTS Richard Crookes Constructions Merit Scholarship for Women. Since 2016, 9 students in either the Faculty of Engineering or the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building have received $15,000 towards their degree over a 2-year period, before going on to undertake a cadetship with the RCC team.

UTS Richard Crookes Constructions Merit Scholarship for Women alumni from the past 3 years joined Richard Crookes, Executive Chairman, Samantha Kuiper, General Manager – Design and Innovation, Tony Grippi, General Manager – Operations and Vanessa Riley, Chief People Officer, for a site tour of the iconic Sirius project. This was a wonderful opportunity for our Leadership Team to connect with industry trailblazers – the young females making their mark within the construction and design space.

Due for completion this year, Samantha explained how the project will revitalise the iconic landmark while protecting its rich heritage – offering high-end, luxury living and an unparalleled Sydney lifestyle opportunity.

We strongly believe in the value of camaraderie and creating a workplace that’s both enjoyable and supportive. Given this, maintaining a genuine connection with our scholarship recipients, and in-turn, supporting the next generation of female leaders in the industry, is of the utmost importance.

Thank you to Richard Crookes, Samantha Kuiper, Tony Grippi, Vanessa Riley, UTS and our incredible alumni for joining us at this event. We look forward to enhancing our scholarship programme in the future, and can’t to watch you progress through what will, no doubt, be amazing careers.
