Two UL Physics students, Nell Hartney BSc Mathematics and Physics and Elora McFall BSc Applied Physics were presented with bursaries by global healthcare company Johnson & Johnson (J&J) as part of its WiSTEM2D Award Programme at a ceremony at University of Limerick (UL) on Wednesday, November 22.
WiSTEM2D refers to Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing and Design. This is the second year of this initiative which is an integral part of J&J’s commitment to developing and implementing high-impact strategies to support female students undertaking STEM2D degree courses at UL and in universities around the world.
The WiSTEM2D programme provides opportunities for students to meet and be mentored by female role models from J&J, to visit J&J sites around the country and develop their STEM networks. The ten successful WiSTEM2D students are accomplished, ambitious women currently studying STEM subjects at UL and came through a rigorous selection process.
