Once again in 2021 we are offering STA members the opportunity to apply for eight scholarships to attend the 21st-anniversary Science meets Parliament.
Science meets Parliament brings Australian scientists and technologists together for professional development, networking, and to meet with MPs and Senators. It is a highlight of the annual parliamentary calendar and has enhanced mutual understanding between Parliamentarians and scientists as well as fostering enduring partnerships and collaborations.
Two (2) Scholarships are open to STEM practitioners in each of the following categories:
Applications will close on 17 February 2021, with recipients to be contacted by 23 February and an announcement made shortly after.
- Indigenous STEM Scholarships for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people
- STEM Pride scholarships for people who identify as LGBTQI+
- Regional STEM scholarships for STEM practitioners who work in remote or regional Australia (>150km from a major capital city)
- Technology scholarships for STEM practitioners working in the technologically based areas of engineering and information technology.
You will find more information and the application to apply here.
Lastly I would like to give thanks to our generous scholarship supporters.
