Women are still largely underrepresented in fields such as information technology and natural sciences, engineering and mathematics. The designation STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
To create a world where men and women have equal opportunities, women must play an active role in technology and technological development.
Zonta International's scholarship in STEM aims to encourage women to invest in education, careers and leadership roles in technical fields.
Who can apply
The scholarship can be applied for by you who are studying on a program in natural sciences, information technology, engineering or mathematics at an accredited university or college at bachelor's or master's level. The application can be made after you have completed the first year of your education, i.e. from year two until graduation.
When the scholarship is paid, you must still be enrolled at the university and you will graduate in May 2024 at the earliest.
Applicants must demonstrate exceptional aptitude in their field and live or study in Sweden or Latvia at the time of application. Even online students can apply if they are studying at an accredited university or college.
