Cash fillip for women

October 15, 2004

The Department for Education and Skills has stumped up £200,000 to help universities retain female students of science, engineering and technology and to encourage them to take up careers in the field. The money is part of a Science Engineering and Technology scheme, Set for Work, run by the UK Resource Centre for Women. Universities can bid for up to £15,000 towards mentoring schemes, placements in industry and research, focused tutor and peer support systems and working with employers. The deadline is November 12.
