Morgan Stanley  and The Women's Foundation Join Forces to Empower  Disadvantaged  Girls  Pursuing  University STEM Degrees  in  Hong Kong

In October 2022, Morgan Stanley announced the launch of the Institute for Inclusion’s (IFI) Step into STEM Scholarship Scheme in Hong Kong. In collaboration with non-profit partner The Women’s Foundation (TWF), the programme will support students in need in Hong Kong by providing them financial assistance and skill-building opportunities. The scholarship aims to help address the structural under-representation of women from underserved communities pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) related degrees.

“STEM skills are critical to future jobs,” Fiona Nott, CEO of The Women's Foundation remarked. “At TWF, one of our key aims is to ensure girls are equipped with the support, confidence and skills they need to pursue meaningful, in-demand careers -- regardless of background. Access to STEM in higher education is a key part of that. This is why we are thrilled to partner with Morgan Stanley to provide scholarships to disadvantaged girls to pursue STEM degrees and grow the pipeline of female talent entering into STEM-related careers.” 

The Morgan Stanley Step into STEM Scholarship Scheme aims to encourage women’s further interest and pursuit of STEM subjects and careers at the post-secondary level by providing students in need with dedicated financial assistance. Scholarships will be awarded to selected eligible students from underserved backgrounds who are admitted to a full-time STEM degree at a university in Hong Kong starting in September 2024.

As the Scholarship Scheme Sponsor, Morgan Stanley will also launch the English for STEM initiative, an opportunity for GGT participants to enhance and build confidence in their English language capabilities through workshops with volunteer mentors from Morgan Stanley.
