About British Council:

The British Council, a British organization specializing in international cultural and educational opportunities, operates in over 100 countries. It promotes a broader understanding of the United Kingdom and the English language (and the Welsh language in Argentina), encourages cultural, scientific, technological, and educational cooperation with the United Kingdom. Many consider the organization a soft power extension of UK foreign policy and a tool for propaganda. The Royal Charter governs the British Council. Additionally, it functions as a public corporation and an executive non-departmental public body (NDPB), sponsored by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. Its headquarters reside in Stratford, London, and Sarah Sands serves as its acting chair while Scott McDonald is its chief executive.

Why a scholarship for women to study?

According to data from the UN Scientific Education and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), less than 30 per cent of the world’s researchers are women and only 30 percent of female students select STEM-related fields in higher education.

Globally, female students’ enrolment is particularly low in Information and Communications Technology (three per cent), natural science, mathematics and statistics (five per cent), and engineering, manufacturing and construction (eight per cent). 

Educating, training, and hiring more women in STEM can lead to better scientific and financial outcomes, increasing diversity in the workforce, bringing variety in perspectives and ideas and giving organisations a competitive edge.
