Deutsche Telekom praises again the Women’s STEM Award. Although the STEM field is constantly being enriched by valuable, female talents and the statistics are more and more positive with regard to equality and gender distribution, the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics are still male disciplines. This is why Deutsche Telekom is honoring outstanding academic achievements again in order to get even more young women inspired for a career in STEM.

Together with the initiative “MINT Zukunft schaffen” and the students’ magazine “audimax MEDIEN”, Deutsche Telekom awards the best thesis with 3,000€. In addition, each innovative topic will be awarded 500€.
