Women in STEM Leadership Scholarship

As part of its ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, Queensland University of Technology will offer scholarships to a number of women who enrol to study a Master of Engineering Management online.

QUT’s commitment to an inclusive vision

As an institution of higher learning, QUT recognises the unique responsibility it holds to help enact positive social change in Australia and internationally.

An important part of QUT’s vision is to provide more opportunities for students from all backgrounds to receive a tertiary education, opening the door to new possibilities in the lives of ordinary Australians.

To support this commitment to diversity and inclusion, QUT is offering scholarships to a number of women who plan to study one of the Master of Engineering Management.

Scholarships for women

There is a notable gender disparity at tertiary education level between men and women studying science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) courses. Completion of tertiary STEM education – particularly engineering and related technologies – is far lower among women.

The Australian Government Report ‘Advancing Women in STEM’ found that women accounted for only 15 per cent of domestic Engineering and Related Technologies undergraduate course completions in 2016 (p. 3).

With the financial support of a scholarship combined with the flexibility of online study, QUT Online will provide greater opportunities and support more women to study in the crucial field of engineering management.

The application process

Eligible students, who are female-identifying, must apply for the available scholarship, and the course must be completed within three years.

Successful applicants will receive a 25% discount on their course fees.
