The IET’s annual Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards are annual awards which look for the best young women engineers in the UK.
7 Jul 2017
There are currently three prizes which are awarded at a national ceremony in London, covered by print and broadcast media.
The IET Young woman of the year will be awarded £2,500 (two thousand five hundred pounds).
The Women’s Engineering Society (WES) Prize winner will be awarded £750 (seven hundred and fifty pounds).
The Mary George Memorial Prize for Apprentices winner will also be awarded £750 (seven hundred and fifty pounds).
All of the winners will have the opportunity to attend high profile events and meet the most influential people in the industry.
OTHER KEY DATES
- Successful candidates (or, the “Shortlist”) will be invited to an interview which will be in London on Tuesday 5 September 2017.
- The top five shortlisted candidates (or “the Finalists”) will have a short film produced about them which will be played at the ceremony and used to help promote the awards and women in engineering.
- All finalists will be required to attend the ceremony held at the IET London: Savoy Place, on Thursday, 7 December 2017.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
