About the Scholarships

Women in Automotive (WinA) is proud to offer three Industry Scholarships in 2015.

The scholarships put into action two important aims in the Women in Automotive Charter.

  • 1. To raise the profile of women and recognise them as an integral part of the automotive industry
  • 2. To provide a forum to enhance skills and qualifications, by encouraging tailor-made courses for women within the industry

We seek to reward merit by providing opportunities through learning for women with a demonstrated passion for the automotive industry.
