STEM Subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) have traditionally attracted more men than women but industry is keen to change this. Fortunately for the girls who are good at science subjects, this means that there are an increasing number of scholarships being offered to encourage more women to take up STEM subjects.
Here are some examples of scholarships for women in STEM subjects for both undergraduates and postgraduates. Some of the deadlines may have already passed for this academic year, but remember many of these will be repeated each year.
