"I feel deeply honoured, humbled and thrilled to be the recipient of this award,” says Yehia, who is considering postgraduate study in an energy-related area. “Recognition of hard work is primarily what motivates me to keep performing to the best of my ability. Both EDF and Institut de France are prestigious institutions that I admire greatly and I couldn't feel more privileged for their support. I am excited to contribute to nuclear energy, a safe and sustainable solution to our serious global energy challenges.”

It is always nice to have your efforts recognised, especially when said recognition comes from two such respected sources.

Robert is currently planning on working in the renewable energy sector after his degree, and is equally happy to have been granted the award. “I am absolutely chuffed,” he said. “It is always nice to have your efforts recognised, especially when said recognition comes from two such respected sources. I would like to thank both EDF and Institut de France for their generosity and look forward to returning to Imperial for my final year, where this support will make success just that little bit easier to attain." 

EDF and Institut de France’s Foundation Awards are granted annually to high-performing students studying Nuclear Engineering related degrees. Congratulations to both students!
