5. Are men allowed? (Are only women allowed?)

Womanium programs are open to each and all! Everyone is allowed and encouraged to apply and learn, including men.
All Womanium programs are equally open to all on the basis of interest and merit.
A higher proportion of all Womanium Scholarships are geared towards young women in STEM between 15-25 years of age, as Womanium aims to advance cutting edge STEM+Entrepreneurship domains with an added focus to encourage and enable young girls and women to enter cutting edge STEM domains and become leaders in STEM+Entrepreneurship. (Hence, the name!)

Computer. Internet. Interest!


The goals of the projects are to learn, promote, advance and showcase the topics, developments and opportunities in Quantum fields, and to encourage, train and advance STEM for more young people, especially young women, by training them.

1. Global Quantum Education & Training Project

You have to select and train at least 5 young people in Quantum topics, and share their work and progress.
Share and showcase their progress so as to encourage more people, especially women and girls, to learn STEM and advance STEM globally.
You can also train older people as long they share and train other people.

2. Global Quantum Chapters Project

Set up a Womanium Quantum Chapter in your school, university, organisation, company, city or town.
Set up the Quantum Chapters/Clubs and showcase their progress so as to encourage more women and girls to learn STEM and advance STEM globally.

3. Online Quantum Media Project

Set up a Womanium Quantum online media. It can be a blog, website, Medium page, or on any major online media. It has to be public.
Share your Quantum journey and training there by writing articles, curating contents, and showcasing the progress of the above projects.
Set up the Online Quantum Media Project and showcase the progress so as to encourage more women and girls to learn STEM and advance STEM globally.

4. Global Quantum Poster Project

Make high quality posters in Quantum topics from each week's sessions, and showcase them.

5. Global Quantum Open Project

Do you have your idea for a new project? You can suggest and collaborate on that on our Discord channels. Get it approved and create your open project that will meet the above objectives.


Womanium’s Global Quantum Solutions Launchpad offers an opportunity for selected top participants to work on real-world industry projects as part of a 2-6 months paid fellowship. More information will be shared during the Womanium Quantum Program. Questions/details will be shared via our dedicated Discord channels.
