Science students are getting a boost with new grants taking them interstate and beyond!

The Inspiring Australia Student Sponsorship Grants have just opened, and aim to support young Australians with a passion for STEM.

The Sponsorship Grants for Student Science Engagement and International Competitions are available to schools and community groups to sponsor an eligible young Australian to participate in conferences, competitions and other exciting STEM events, both in Australia and overseas.

The event must be STEM-related and may include a student pitching an innovative idea to entrepreneurs, participation at a competition, or other events that develop a young person’s skills and career opportunities in STEM.

Grants of up to $1500 are available to young Australians attending domestic events and $5000 for attendance at international events.

Applications for the Sponsorship Grants are currently openĀ and will be assessed as they are received. Applications will close when the funding allocation has been exhausted. For more information and to apply, head to the website.
