Ford is launching a £1,000 competition to recognise the achievements of women studying Stem-based subjects and to encourage other women to become involved.
The prize will be awarded to a female student who is judged to have inspired the next generation of scientists, engineers and technologists.
The competition's launch coincided with the the first National Women in Engineering Day held on 23 June, which was organised to mark the 95th anniversary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES).
Barb Samardzich, Ford of Europe’s chief operating officer, said: “Ford strongly supports the need for more young women to study Stem subjects and I’m delighted to announce the Ford Prize for Women in Stem study ... this is part of our on-going work to encourage more young people, especially girls, into Stem careers and to inspire a future generation of engineers.”
