The scholarships aim to advance female leadership and increase diversity in technology organisations and all high-tech environments.

Each scholarship is valued at €7,900, which is 50% of the fee for the MSc in Technology Management, and will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applications will open on 2nd January 2020 and will be accepted until 10th July 2020. The scholarship is awarded in conjunction with the 30% Club.
