GIRLS@POLIMI 2022: 15 engineering students honoured

Scholarships awarded to promote gender equal opportunities

Susan, Giulia C., Sara, Lucrezia, Federica, Chiara, Susanna, Francesca S., Anna, Beatrice, Ludovica, Raffaella, Giulia D., Virginia and Francesca P. are this year's winners of the 15 scholarships awarded as part of Girls@Polimi, a project within the Politecnico di Milano to support female students who, after high school, decide to undertake studies in the field of STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The students were honoured at an event held on Thursday 29th September in the presence of Professor Donatella Sciuto, pro-rector of the Politecnico di Milano, and the donors.

The girls, enrolled in engineering programmes with a low number of female students, receive scholarships, each worth €8,000 per year, with the chance to renew them for their next two years of study. On this edition, the scholarships have been funded by 9 companies (Gruppo Autostrade per l’Italia, Bain & Company Italy, Banco BPM, Eurofins Foundation, Fastweb, Intesa Sanpaolo, Leonardo, Gruppo Nestlé in Italia, NHOA), by theUniversity itself and by private donors, alumni of Politecnico di Milano.

Girls@Polimi is an initiative of Gender POP, one of the lines of action specified in the Polytechnic Equal Opportunities strategic programme with which the University is committed to guaranteeing an inclusive and respectful study and work environment.
