Each participant is matched with a female mentor who will meet with them monthly to support their personal development, helping them to build their experience and skills in their area of interest and their confidence in themselves.
Participants are awarded £500 of scholarship funding at the beginning of the programme. The money allows participants to access materials, events and experiences related to their area of interest. Each mentor will help manage the scholarship funding to ensure it has the maximum impact for the participant.
As part of the programme participants will work on a project to help support other young women from their community to develop their interest in science or finance.
The programme has been designed to develop participants’ understanding of and experience in their area of interest, in addition to building their skills and CV more generally.
