Intel Women in Technology Award

Through the Intel Women in Technology Award, Intel hopes to increase awareness and encourage a new generation of high-achieving women to take up the challenge of a career in science and technology.

The Intel Women in Technology Award is presented each year to a number of female undergraduate students currently studying in Institutes of Technology in Ireland.

The award, which includes a monetary payment, is open to females in their final year of a specified undergraduate Level 6/7 qualification in science and technology (full selection criteria is included below) and award recipients will be selected based on academic excellence*. The monetary award is valued at €1500. View the 2016 Women in Technology Award winners here at our Intel Newsroom.

*Award selection is based on Academic excellence which will be determined by the relevant Institute of Technology and not Intel.
