This scholarship programme – supported by the British Council – aims to increase opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for girls and women.
According to data from the UN Scientific Education and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), fewer than 30% of researchers worldwide are women and only 30% of female students select STEM-related fields in higher education.
Globally, female students’ enrolment is particularly low in information and communications technology (3%), natural science, mathematics and statistics (5%), and engineering, manufacturing and construction (8%).
There are five British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM available in total from The University of Manchester.
Scholarship applications will open to relevant offer-holders from January 2022.
A scholarship application form will be emailed to all relevant offer-holders by the International Office.
