The program forms part of a wider focus by Intel to empower girls and women by fostering educational opportunities and encouraging females to participate, prosper, and lead in the global economy.
The program is available to female school leavers entering, in September 2017, specified four year undergraduate degree courses in science, technology and engineering. The scholarships are applicable to a wide variety of courses offered at third level institutions across Ireland. The program offers a monetary grant valued at €3,000 per annum as well as opportunities for work placements at one of Intel’s Ireland locations in Leixlip or Shannon.
