Science & Technology Australia is offering six scholarships to the 20th anniversary Science meets Parliament this year, to be held in Canberra on 13-14 August 2019.

Science meets Parliament brings around 200 Australian scientists and technologists to Canberra for professional development, networking, and to meet face-to-face with MPs and Senators. It is a highlight of the annual parliamentary calendar and has enhanced mutual understanding between parliamentarians and scientists as well as fostering enduring partnerships and collaborations.

Two (2) Scholarships are open to STEM practitioners in each of the following categories:

  • Indigenous STEM Scholarships for people with Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage
  • STEM Pride scholarships for people who identify as LGBTQI+
  • Regional STEM scholarships for STEM practitioners who work in remote or regional Australia (>150km from a major capital city)

Scholarships will cover full registration including the gala dinner in the Great Hall at Parliament House, as well as travel, accommodation, meals and transfers. Financial assistance for childcare is available upon application.

Please note that to be eligible for these scholarships you must be a member of or employed by an STA member organisation (such as SSA).

The Indigenous STEM Scholarships are proudly supported by the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS).

Applications will close on 15 June 2019, with recipients to be contacted by 30 June 2019 and an announcement made shortly after.

    Media is the important source of getting knowledge that is reviewing more in all the aspects. Therefore in my opinion you have to visit the essential ideas that will relate you to all the required documents for working.

    Today, Australia is one of the top countries in the world where science and technology is at its peak and living standard of folks is touching the sky. I god writing help from source before going into this event. I was happy to see this event of scientists and technologists which helped inexperienced scientists to learn something special from seniors.
