If you are a student or professional working on science and woman, we strongly encourage you to apply for this award.
The basic idea behind the creation of this award is to identify and acknowledge the contribution that Nepalese women are doing in STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics). We started Women in Astronomy Nepal (WIAN) on November 1, 2015 at NASO in order to create a unique platform for all the women. We believe, this award will add more enthusiam and encouragement among the women who are working in STEM.
Wish you all a very happy International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2018! Lets make better world empowering them to STEM!
Feel free to share this opportunity among the women around you!
