European datacentre operator Stack Infrastructure is to fully sponsor female students in the UK  to attract new talent and drive diversity, equity, and inclusion in the industry.

Stack has launched a datacentre scholarship program for female students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds planning to study a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subject at university in the UK.

Beginning with the 2024-2025 academic year, Stack will fund the entire academic studies of selected students, including the full cost of tuition fees as well as living expenses. The scholars will also be given access to mentorship, internship opportunities, and attendance at leading data center industry events.

The company is a leading global developer and operator of data centres across Europe.

“The Scholarship Programme is a groundbreaking initiative which we are proud to add to our growing list of meaningful and impactful education programmes across EMEA,” said John Eland, CEO, Stack EMEA. “Data centers are the backbone of digital innovation, and we believe the sector offers vibrant and dynamic career opportunities for ambitious individuals from an array of backgrounds. The STACK Scholarship Program reinforces our unwavering commitment to social mobility, diversity, and driving representation within the data center industry.”

These education programmes enable a clear pathway of support for current and future jobseekers across EMEA, from primary school age children all the way through to seasoned professionals looking to reskill. The company’s partnerships, apprenticeships, and scholarships put data centres and critical STEM subjects on the agenda for hundreds of students across a wide range of age groups.
