On 28 September, during an event held in the Aula Magna, Rector Donatella Sciuto, the Delegate for Diversity and inclusion Mara Tanelli and the donors awarded the 25 female students, winners of the 2023 edition of Girls@POLIMI.
Girls@POLIMI is the project of the Politecnico di Milano created to support girls who, during the high school, decide to undertake studies in the field of STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and attend engineering programmes with a low number of female students.
The awarded students will receive scholarships, each worth € 8,000 per year, with the chance to renew them for their next two years of study, and will have the opportunity to participate in events and initiatives of communication and training, such as mentoring and educational monitoring.
The scholarships have been funded by 12 companies (Gruppo Autostrade per l’Italia, Energy Dome, Esselunga, Fastweb, Hitachi Energy, Intesa Sanpaolo, Leonardo, Gruppo Lutech, MEDIOBANCA, Gruppo Nestlé in Italia, Reply, SIAE MICROELETTRONICA), by a foundation (Fondazione r.e.ACT ETS), by the University itself and by Alumni Politecnico di Milano.
Girls@Polimi is one of the initiatives with which the Politecnico di Milano is committed to promoting equal opportunities and guaranteeing an inclusive and respectful study and work environment where everyone's uniqueness is respected.
