Prysmian Group, the world leader in the energy and telecom cable industry, today announced that it is now accepting applications for its Women in STEM Scholarship program. Through this program, Prysmian Group will award $2,500 scholarships to eight eligible recipients enrolled in an accredited U.S. college or university for the 2023-24 academic year, who identify as female, pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

As one of the leading technological players in the transition to low carbon energy, Prysmian Group’s new Women in STEM Scholarship program was developed to inspire, prepare and enable more women to pursue careers in the important, growing and high-paying manufacturing and technology industries.

Prysmian’s Women in STEM Scholarship program aligns with the Group’s overall sustainability and social ambition commitments. The company believes in developing its employees and recognizes the need to actively promote the transition towards a more equal, diverse, inclusive and enriched working environment.

“We are proud advocates of social ambitions that support our people and communities, including fostering a culture that embraces and encourages diversity and inclusion,” said John Andrews, Vice President of Human Resources at Prysmian Group North America. “Our commitment to advancing gender balance within the cable manufacturing industry is vital to our continued growth and innovation goals. We are honored to launch this scholarship program and do our part to support our next generation of STEM leaders.”

Scholarship applications are open through Thursday, June 15, 2023, and available to high school seniors and/or graduates who will be enrolled at an accredited U.S. college or university for the 2023-24 academic year. Current undergraduate and graduate college students majoring in STEM-related fields are also eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients will also be offered a virtual mentorship opportunity with a Prysmian Group employee throughout their college years.  

Students can apply in one of two ways:

  • Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram) – Students can apply by posting on social media about “Why they have chosen to pursue a STEM-related field.” When doing so, they will use the hashtag #PrysmianWomenInSTEM and tag Prysmian Group; or

  • Essay – Students can write an essay of 500 words or more on the same prompt.

Students will also fill out a simple online application that will capture relevant information for the scholarship submission, including the essay or link to the social media entry.
