Yondr launches scholarship for female engineering students

Recognising the pivotal role that diversity plays in shaping the future of the data center and digital infrastructure industry, Yondr has launched the Yondr Women in Engineering Scholarship at The School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queens University, Belfast, UK. 

The first recipient of this scholarship is Orla Quail, a Second year MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering student. 

“I am extremely grateful to have been awarded this incredible scholarship. Yondr’s support will make a huge difference in my journey to becoming a qualified electrical and electronic engineer. It will enable me to spend more time on my studies and to leave university without incurring a huge tuition-fee debt,” Orla commented. 

As such, this scholarship will make an enormous difference, not only to my remaining time at university but also my future career. I will take every opportunity that this scholarship provides to excel in my studies and ensure that I can be a positive role model for other young females thinking of pursuing a career in engineering. I would like to thank Yondr for supporting the female engineers of the future.” 

The Yondr Women in Engineering Scholarship was established to both inspire and support female engineering students, with the aim of advancing the representation of women in the data center industry.  

Paul Hood, COO, Global Data Center Operations for Yondr, said: “We are proud to award this scholarship to Orla and support female talent in the engineering space. At Yondr, we believe a diverse workforce is a must for any industry to survive and thrive. We wish Orla the best with her studies and hope this scholarship can play a part in furthering her aspirations in the engineering industry.”
