About the Programme
A programme to equip you with the skills and support required to develop your enterprising ideas.
The Althea-Imperial Programme is a personal and professional development programme aimed at women studying at Imperial. It consists of a series of workshops designed to help you develop your enterprising idea. The programme will include high-profile speakers and tailored one-to-one mentoring.
Once the programme is complete, all participants can opt to submit their ideas to the Althea-Imperial Prize. Both the programme and its associated prize have been designed to encourage female students, through a series of exclusive development and mentoring opportunities. As individuals or by leading a team, these students will see an innovative project through to fruition.
The top prize is £10,000 and there are a series of runners up prizes.
