STACK Infrastructure has introduced a scholarship programme for female students who want to study STEM subjects at UK universities.

The initiative, which is aimed at students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, was created in partnership with financial edtech platform Blackbullion, and seeks to promote social mobility and diversity within the data centre industry.

Starting from the 2024-2025 academic year, the programme will cover the full academic costs for selected students, including tuition fees and living expenses. Scholars will also benefit from mentorship, internship opportunities, and participation in key industry events.

John Eland, CEO of STACK EMEA, said, “The STACK Scholarship Program is a groundbreaking initiative which we are proud to add to our growing list of meaningful and impactful education programs across EMEA. Data centres are the backbone of digital innovation, and we believe the sector offers vibrant and dynamic career opportunities for ambitious individuals from an array of backgrounds. The STACK Scholarship Program reinforces our unwavering commitment to social mobility, diversity, and driving representation within the data centre industry.”

The scholarship programme is part of STACK’s wider educational initiatives, which provide support from primary education through to professional reskilling across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. These initiatives include partnerships, apprenticeships, and scholarships that highlight the importance of data centres and STEM subjects to a diverse range of students.
