Indonesian Women in STEM

This scholarship scheme supports high-achieving female graduate researchers from Indonesia to conduct research in STEM disciplines. Female STEM scholars are currently underrepresented in higher education. This scheme is part of our efforts to address this, by encouraging more women to take the next step in their STEM careers. The aim is to help overcome environmental and social barriers women face that might impede the progress of their academic careers.
