A national grant program is now open to support the next generation of Indigenous girls into the jobs of the future, in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The grant program will support an organisation to work with the Australian Government in the design and delivery of the Indigenous Girls’ STEM Academy.

The Academy will be a national program with a focus on supporting high achieving Indigenous girls from the middle years of high school through higher education and to graduate employment.

Over the schooling years and through university, students will have access to ongoing individualised student support that is flexible to their needs.

The Academy will include:

  • ongoing, long-term individualised student support
  • intensive workshop programs (e.g. summer school/holiday program) with high quality STEM extension activities and early engagement with corporate partners, and
  • work placements throughout high school and tertiary studies with corporate partners.

Applications close 11.30pm AEST 4 May 2018.
