More STEM scholarships for Durack regional students
January 24, 2019
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 the Federal Government is increasing the number of scholarships available through the Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships program and applications are now open.
“Scholarships of up to $18,000 are available to help Durack students with the costs of studying STEM at university or a Vocational Education and Training (VET) 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 Durack who wants to study STEM to apply for the program,” said the Minister.
The Federal Government has committed $58.1 million for more than 3,150 scholarships for regional and remote students.
The first round of the scholarship program has already helped 504 regional and remote students to begin study in 2018.
Applications close on Friday 1 February 2019 and offers will be made on 11 February 2019.
