To ensure greater enrolment, retention and improved performance female scholarships and fellowships have been awarded. The undergraduate scholarship was to allow more female undergraduate students to benefit and ensure that those currently on the programme receive support to successfully complete their education.


In order to redress gender gaps in enrolment and employment, and to create a pool of female postgraduate students for recruitment into the academia, postgraduate scholarships covering tuition, laboratory experiments and fieldwork, were awarded.


The fellowships were offered to female staff on their PhD programmes under the split postgraduate studies, such that awardees spent 3 months abroad building international linkages, and using state of the art equipment and libraries for scientific research.
