Three Mayo students at NUI Galway have been awarded scholarships at a virtual ceremony as part of the Johnson & Johnson Ireland Women in STEM2D Award Programme.
Brenda Chanza (Swinford), Aine Mitchell (Ballina), and Rida Naseer (Ballyhaunis) were among the ten students that secured the scholarships.
This marks the inaugural year of the programme in NUI Galway. The scholarship recipients will receive extensive industry mentoring and leadership training to help prepare them to pursue a career in STEM referring to women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing and Design.
Aine, Brenda and Rida are all studying General Science.
Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh, President of NUI Galway, says these students are changemakers, making history and shaping the future of our university. We are very proud of our 10 Johnson & Johnson scholarship students.
