The Western Power Women in Electrical Engineering Scholarship recognises the underrepresentation of women in Engineering and aims to create an opportunity to inspire women to seek professional, non-traditional careers in electrical engineering. By supporting educational and long-term professional development, Western Power aims to nurture talented female leaders for a future career in the energy industry.

Western Power is a Western Australian State Government owned corporation with the purpose of efficiently connecting people with electricity in a way that is safe and reliable. Western Power provides an essential service through the transmission and distribution of electricity across Western Australia's vast infrastructure of poles, wires, substations and depots. Western Power serves more than 1 million customers across a network area of almost 255,000 km2, including more than 100,000 kms of powerlines – enough to wrap around the earth's equator 2 times.

The Western Power Women in Electrical Engineering Scholarship has been developed by Western Power in conjunction with Curtin University to support and encourage future female students wanting to study electrical power engineering and is awarded on the basis of academic merit.
