CABE is set to launch a bursary to encourage ethnic minority students in urban design. The move coincides with a CABE research project into the barriers faced by ethnic minority students. Interim findings from the Policy Studies Institute research suggest a higher drop-out rate for ethnic minority students than others.
Chris Murray, director of learning and development at CABE, said: 'It is essential that professional training linked to the built environment becomes accessible to minority groups.'
Full details of the bursary have yet to be finalised.
