Recognising that women are traditionally under-represented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) studies and the related professions, Ford is delighted to announce the Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study 2016, 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 who will be starting her second year of a STEM degree in September/October 2016, and who can demonstrate that they are inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and technologists.
1st Prize £1,000

Entries accepted: May 1st - June 30th 2016
Finalists will be invited to attend an Assessment Day at Dunton Technical Centre in September 2016
