The British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM to support women wishing to pursue postgraduate study in science, technology, engineering or maths at a university in the UK is now open for application. This unique scholarship is aimed at women with a background in STEM, who can demonstrate their need for financial support and who wish to inspire future generations of women to pursue careers in STEM.
The scholarships will give opportunities to women in eight countries in East Asia to obtain a Master’s degree or Early Academic Fellowship from a UK university, giving them the opportunity to further develop their careers in STEM subjects. This year, a total of 29 scholarships from six UK universities are available for East Asia and the hosting UK universities are Brunel University, Teesside University, Liverpool John Moores University, Edinburgh Napier University, University of Glasgow and University of York.
Awardees will have access to economic support, including tuition fees, stipends, travel costs, visas, health coverage fees and special support for mothers. Application deadlines vary between courses, ranging from 9 March 2022 to 10 April 2022.
