 In News

The 2017 winner of the Skills 4 UK Scholar’s Award has been announced: Kathryn Frankland (UKESF Scholar 2016–18), who studies at the University of Nottingham and is sponsored by Imagination Technologies.

Kathryn will receive a place on Skills 4 UK’s award-winning Career Development Programme, as well as additional coaching. This award takes into account academic performance, placement feedback and STEM-awareness contribution.

Kathryn said, “I am thrilled to be the recipient of the Skills 4 UK Scholar’s Award. UKESF has already provided me with excellent opportunities but to have this additional career development support as well is invaluable! I am really looking forward to taking part in the Skills 4 UK programme in the new year.”

Kathryn follows Keerthi Mukku, winner of the inaugural Skills 4 UK Scholar’s Award last year. Since then, Keerthi has graduated and now works at Qualcomm; she has written about her experiences here.

UKESF CEO Stew Edmondson said, “We really appreciate Skills 4 UK’s support for all our female scholars and especially for this award. It is great that Kathryn has been selected this year, it’s a brilliant opportunity which should help her make the transition into industry. Diversity is such an important issue for the Electronics sector to address, that is why I am pleased with this collaboration; we are doing something specific and beneficial.”

Congratulations Kathryn!
