Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study
Recognising that women are traditionally under-represented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) studies and the related professions, Ford has announced the 2015 Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study, which will recognise the achievements of women in STEM, encouraging other women to become involved.
In association with the Ford PWN (Professional Women’s Network) the prize is to be awarded to a female student starting her first year of a STEM degree at a UK university, who can demonstrate how they are inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and technologists.
The Prize is £1,000.
Judges are looking for women who can demonstrate their enthusiasm and commitment, inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and technologists.
