An important part of the Women in Engineering program is raising the awareness of engineering as a potential career option for girls. We want to shatter the perception that engineering is a profession for men involving hard hats, physical labour and heavy machinery. Engineering is an extraordinarily diverse field and UNSW has an illustrious history of female graduates making impact in the areas of medical science, environmental stewardship, world health and energy innovation. These engineers require lateral thinking, creativity, problem-solving and management skills.
UNSW provides a wide range of Women in Engineering scholarships to support high-achieving female students throughout their degree. Apply here and search for ‘Engineering’ in the keywords.
We recommend you apply for as many scholarships that you are eligible for to increase your chances (not just WIE scholarships).

See our Research Scholarships page for more information.
