Intel works closely with local schools and colleges to help ensure that Ireland’s educational system continues to produce graduates of exceptional quality.
Each scholarship includes an annual grant of €2,000 and intern placements or summer internships at the Intel Leixlip campus.
Additionally, to assist with career progression and further education, each scholar will be assigned an Intel mentor who can assist and provide advice on managing their academic career.
Criteria for selection:
- The program is open to female school leavers entering approved undergraduate degrees
- Candidates must secure a minimum of 400 points in their Leaving Certificate
- Written proof of registration in a relevant 3rd level institute must be supplied
- Recipients must be willing to undertake their co-op placement or internship in Intel Leixlip, where applicable
- Students will be required to provide by post a copy of their Junior and Leaving Certificate results
The scholarship programme is part of a wider drive within Intel to diversify its workforce, the tech giant has already pledged US$300m to ensure that its workforce reflects the racial and sexual make-up of the population by 2020.
