Ford STEMRecognising that women are traditionally under-represented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) studies and the related professions, Ford is delighted to announce the inaugural Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study, which will recognise the achievements of women in STEM, encouraging other women to become involved.

In association with the Ford PWN (Professional Women's Network) the £1000 cash prize is to be awarded to a female student about to enter her first year of a STEM degree, who can demonstrate how they are inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and technologists.

The website for the Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study can be found at:

The deadline for entries has been extended to Friday September 19th 2014.
