Applications for the Women in STEMM Student Leader Awards for 2022 are now open!
After the great success of the 2021 Women in STEMM Student Leader Awards, the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME) is looking forward to again recognising, celebrating and supporting women students at Monash University who are contributing to innovation in healthcare and medical technologies.
Open to undergraduate and postgraduate Monash University students who identify as women, the MIME Women in STEMM Student Leader Award will provide six successful students with $1,000 to support their studies. Awardees will also participate in a series of MIME networking opportunities throughout 2023.
We are looking for students who have:
- Made contributions to innovation in healthcare and medical technologies, such as involvement in relevant research projects.
- Showcase demonstratable leadership skills, such as contributions to relevant university initiatives and societies.
- Experience as a positive role-model for others aspiring to a career in STEMM.
If this sounds like you or someone in your network we encourage you to apply and/or share the opportunity.
Applications close Monday 21 November midnight AEDT.
At least one award will be given to each of our Partner Faculties of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences; Engineering; Information Technology; and Art, Design & Architecture. Undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to apply.
This award is a part of a broader MIME strategy to support and celebrate women in healthcare innovation.
