Niamh McGrath is a 4th year Financial Mathematics and Actuarial Science student who was recently awarded a Johnson and Johnson WiSTEM2D scholarship which supports women in their careers in STEM2D disciplines. Niamh is a member of the WiSTEM society since first year and is currently the Finance Officer for the society for the academic year 2021/2022. In addition to the bursary prize Niamh will work with a Johnson and Johnson mentor honing her leadership skills in additon to internship opportunities within the company. 

The aim of WiSTEM is to proactively empower women interested in and/or studying STEM courses to realise their full potential in college and their careers in order to tackle the under-representation of women at senior levels across STEM. 

In conversation with Niamh "the ideas, support and passion of the WiSTEM2D programme have been a huge inspiration to me through my entire college career so it is an incredible honour to have been selected to this prestigious programme. Being a member of the WiSTEM society has provided me with a platform to promote Women in STEM2D fields throughout my studies in UCC. 


The School is incredibly honoured to be part of this successful programmes with Johnson & Johnson and their support of women in pursuit of STEM2D studies and careers.
