STEM scholarships for Durack regional students
November 2, 2018
Federal Member for Durack and Minister for the Environment Melissa Price encourages students in the Durack electorate to apply for a Government-funded scholarship to study a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) course.
Minister Price said applications were now open for the $24 million Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships program.
“Scholarships of up to $18,000 are available to help students in Durack with the costs of studying STEM at university or a vocational education and training institution,” she said.
“One of these scholarships could help a promising Durack student realise their potential and get a STEM education that will open a world of future possibilities.
“New guidelines will also make it easier for drought-affected students to apply, including families receiving the Farm Household Allowance.
“I encourage every student in my electorate who wants to study STEM to apply for the program,” said Minister Price.
More than 1,200 rural, regional and remote students will receive support through the program.
The scholarships may also include internships to help students develop their professional experience and ensure they’re job-ready.
Applications close on Friday 14 December 2018.
