Teachers or others may be interested in this opportunity:
Students in year 11 this year who have a passion for science and technology
should look at applying for the National Youth Science Forum 2018 program.
Attending the NYSF is an excellent way for young people to assess their level
of interest in and commitment to further STEM study, and to start building
networks for their future.
Delivered in the January school holidays each year, the 12-day program offers
laboratory visits and science tours, the chance to mix with like-minded
students from all over Australia, and activities that develop a better
understanding of the wide range of study and career options available to them
through engaging with corporate and university partners.
Up to 600 places are available in 2018: three programs will be run - two hosted
at The Australian National University<http://www.anu.edu.au/> and one at The
University of Queensland<http://www.uq.edu.au/>.
For the first time, the NYSF is offering an Equity Scholarship: 40 participants
attending NYSF 2018 Year 12 Program will receive $1,000 each towards their
registration fee, paid as a reduction in the Year 12 Program fee.
Assessment for support through the Equity Scholarship will run parallel to the
broader application process to attend NYSF 2018.
Applications are currently open and all documentation must be received by 31
May. Applications must be endorsed by a local Rotary club; information about
how to connect with a Rotary club is available on the NYSF website.
