The British Council, the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations has announced the second cohort of British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM.
Over 100 scholarships are available to women STEM scholars from Asia and the Americas, out of which 65 scholarships are reserved for women STEM scholars from India and other South Asian countries, awarded on a merit basis with no country-specific cap, according to a press release.
Selected scholars will be able to obtain a master’s degree or an Early Academic Fellowship at a UK university. The scholarship will cover tuition fees, monthly stipend, travel costs, visa and health coverage fees, as well as funding for dependents if any scholar wishes to travel with their children, it said.
The first global cohort of 119 scholars enrolled on their chosen course in the autumn session of 2021 and included 19 women candidates from India.
As part of the programme, Indian women STEM scholars can apply for master’s courses and Early Academic Fellowships across 13 UK universities in courses like Data Science, Environmental Science, Engineering, Public Health Systems, Information Technology, Renewable Energy & Energy Management and Project Management, it said.
Applications for the British Council Scholarships for Women in STEM are open until March 31, though students are encouraged to check individual university deadlines.
