Natasha Linard Scholarship for Women in Engineering & Technology


Each year the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) may offer the Natasha Linard Scholarship for Women in Engineering & Technology.

The objective of this award is to support female students who are undertaking their 3rd (or later) year, of an undergraduate program within CECS. The award aims to help build the recipient's leadership skills in technology, business and community areas, and to develop a mentoring relationship with prominent professionals in the private and public sectors.

This scholarship is offered by CECS in memory of Dr Natasha Linard; a member of the first undergraduate engineering intake at the ANU. Dr Natasha Linard was an outstanding and inspiring role model for female engineers. She was one of the first ANU female students to graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering and, subsequently, with a PhD in Engineering. The scholarship will continue her dedication to mentoring female students and early professionals.

Recipients of the Natasha Linard Scholarship for Women in Engineering & Technology will carry her name with pride and, like her, will no doubt become prominent members of the engineering profession.


The award is available to a current female ANU student who: 

•    is a domestic or international student;
•    is enrolled in an undergraduate program in at least their 3rd of the program within the College;
•    has demonstrated a commitment to socio-technical issues through mentoring female students in their early years at the College, by encouraging young women in their final years at school to consider an engineering degree, or through a focus (e.g. in their final thesis) on developing or applying appropriate technologies for developing economies.
