Premium drinks giant Diageo is continuing to help students with their career prospects by providing a pair of engineering scholarships.

Fife College students Ian Seaton (17), of Pitlochry, and Bryan Neil (33), of Dunfermline, attended a special presentation at the company’s Banbeath bottling plant in Leven, accompanied by college employees.

The group was welcomed to the plant and given a tour by Diageo staff Robert Gardiner and Jean Ednie.

Robert also played a key role in short-listing the final award winners and met all candidates at interviews held a few weeks prior to the presentation.

After the tour, Ian and Bryan were presented with their £1000 scholarships by Robert, on behalf of Diageo.

Said Robert: “We are delighted to support Fife College engineering students through the Adam Smith Foundation again this year.

“As a business we are committed to the development of talented individuals and both Ian and Bryan have shown great dedication and commitment to their studies.

“It was a pleasure to meet the students and I hope the Diageo scholarships will help them both reach their full potential in the engineering industry.”

The Diageo award is part of a range of scholarships created to support students and looked after by the Adam Smith Foundation, which is the charitable trust of Fife College.
