British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM 2024

Women in STEM scholarships are for students studying science, technology, engineering, and math.

Some are for any STEM student, while others need specific qualifications.


Women tend to shy away from STEM because there’s a stereotype that such studies are for men.

Well, that’s about to change for good. The British Council has set up the  Scholarships for Women in STEM 2024.
