13 new Scholarships for equal gender opportunities

Boston Consulting Group, Intesa Sanpaolo and Snam among the donors

The new donation campaign for GIRLS@POLIMI: a Politecnico di Milano's project that involves companies in supporting female engineering students with scholarships has now been successfully concluded. The initative is one of the concrete measures in action to favour the inclusion and equal gender opportunities within the framework of the Project POP (Politecnico's Equal Opportunities), which has the objective of increasing the number of girls in STEM projects.

This first foundraising round has reached 4 big donors: three companies, Intesa Sanpaolo and Intesa Sanpaolo Innovation Center, Snam, Boston Consulting Group and a private donor, for a total of 13 scholarships for 13 students. Each student will recieve a 8.000 euro scholarship per year to support their studies at Politecnico.

The Scholarships Girls@Polimi are dedicated to the best students enrolled in one of the 14 undergraduate and 20 graduate courses in Engineering, courses that still have a low presence of women (less than 35%).
