Ingénieuses 2021: call for applications

Applications open on 15 February!

From February 15, 2021 to March 10, 2021 All day

The Conference of the Deans of French Schools of Engineering (CDEFI) is organising the "Ingénieuses" Competition, for the eleventh consecutive year. The aim is to encourage more girls into science and technology courses and engineering careers.

Several prizes are on offer:

French Engineering Student Prize

This prize is intended to reward an engineering student whose background, ambitions and community involvement are examples for younger students. The winner will receive a prize worth €1,000, awarded in partnership with the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie.

Women in Engineering - two prizes

Working women engineers, whatever their age and experience, are invited to apply for one of the Women in Engineering Awards. These awards are intended to recognize the career paths of two working women engineers, regardless of age and experience, who, through their ambition, personal and professional choices and commitment to gender diversity in engineering, are potential ambassadors of their profession for young girls. The two winners will each be awarded a prize of a symbolic value of €500.

Four prizes for engineering schools

Engineering schools are invited to present one or more projects that meet the objectives of the initiative. Projects can be presented by the school's management team, by administrative or teaching staff, by individual students or groups, by a student association, etc. A prize of €500 will be awarded to each of the winning projects.

How to apply?

Applications open from: 15 February to 10 March 2021

The selection panel will meet in early April 2021 and will select the nominees in each category.
The winners will be presented with their awards at a public ceremony on 20 May 2021.

The competition is organised in partnership with Agence universitaire de la Francophonie, Elles bougent, Femmes ingénieurs, STMicroelectronics and Talents du numérique, with the support of ATC France, Bureau national des élèves-ingénieurs, Campus-Channel, and the Commission des titres d’ingénieur, et de Techniques de l’ingénieur.
