The British Council has launched the Women in STEM (WIS) scholarship programme in partnership with 26 UK universities aimed at benefiting women from across the world to increase opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics).
These scholarships will enable talented women to take up a life-changing opportunity to develop their careers in their chosen STEM fields, and then harness the experience to make a greater impact for good when they return home.
In conjunction with the WIS scholarship launch and to celebrate the International Women’s Day 2023, the British Council in Malaysia in collaboration with the Science Media Centre (SMC) and Petri Dish is hosting the WOMEN IN STEM FORUM 2023: Embracing Equity for Gender Equality.
This session features female role models in STEM including iconic personalities and former recipients of the British Council Women in STEM scholarship to share their unique journey in pursuing STEM education and careers which has enabled them to overcome barriers, advance their professional ambitions and contribute to a world where gender equality is celebrated.
Also joining the session are British Council’s university partners for the year’s Women in STEM Scholarships, who will be sharing details about the specific courses and entry requirements for potential applicants from Malaysia.
