The Department of Computer Science is pleased to celebrate the availability of our Anne-Marie Imafidon Scholarships (AMI Scholarships) for Women in Technology, which we were delighted to name after our Advisory Board Member Anne-Marie, in recognition of her remarkable work inspiring young women to get involved in STEM.
The AMI scholarships were established in 2017 with the support of our kind alumni community and expanded in 2023 thanks to the generosity of Atom Bank. They are designed to support and encourage more talented young women to study Computer Science with us here at Durham, and to celebrate the importance and impact of diversity in our field.
The under-representation of women in all STEM subjects – particularly in Computer Science – is a huge barrier to innovation, and we are proud to be striving towards a Department that is not only welcoming and inclusive, but also vibrant, diverse, and thriving as a result of this. To find out more about our fabulous alumni community who have made this programme possible, along with our current cohort of scholars, please read more on our Impact Page. To find out more about the scholarships available, and to make an application, please see further information below.
Recipients of the scholarship will receive an award of either £2,000 or £4,000 in each year of their study to contribute towards the cost of fees, living expenses, or any other purpose of the recipient’s choosing
Recipients of the scholarship will be invited to become Ambassadors of the Department, and will be encouraged to participate in a number of exciting events and activities within the Department and across the wider University throughout the year
Receiving this prestigious award and taking part in some of the above activities will be a great addition to your CV, and will also give you the opportunity to share your own ideas about how we showcase our CS community here at Durham and make the student experience in the Department even better.
