A British Council project seeks to encourage women to study STEM jobs at UK universities

Globally, the British Council is establishing support programs for women and girls in STEM, designed with a holistic approach.

It aims to encourage young women to work in science, technology, engineering and maths, helping those working in these areas to achieve leadership positions and to connect with peers in their home region and across the UK.

These initiatives include global partnerships with 19 UK universities. For Brazil, Aston and Essex universities offer vacancies aimed at Brazilian women with a background in STEM to encourage future generations, especially those living under financial constraints, to pursue inclusive lives.

Selected applicants will receive a scholarship to study a postgraduate degree at one of the prestigious UK universities that are part of the programme.
