A new bursary for female students looking to study science, technology, engineering or maths - also known as a STEM subject - at university is open for applications in Guernsey.
It is the first bursary of its kind, and has been developed with the aim of creating a more gender balanced environment within the local technology sector.
One local student will be selected, and will receive £1,500 a year to support their studies over a three-year degree.
The student will also undertake six weeks paid work experience at Sure throughout the bursary.
Out of the 338 women currently in higher education from Guernsey, less than 1% are currently studying engineering or computer science.
Students who are interested in applying for the bursary can find out more information here.
