Engineering Empowerment Scholarship

Application Deadline:





Tacuna Systems realise that females are still very much unrepresented in STEM subjects. The aim is to annually award one female student studying an Engineering related subject money towards their undergraduate or graduate studies.

Our belief is that the engineering is a fascinating subject. We specialize in electronic engineering and see first hand the low amount of females entering the profession.

We want to see this change.

What to consider when writing the idea(s):

Enthusiasm - Passion is great, share it!

Originality - Do you have ideas that schools, governments or industry have not thought about or applied to improve representation?

Forward Thinking - How do you see the future shaping representation?
