Applications are now open for the next intake of students to join the world-first Young Indigenous Women’s STEM Academy (the Academy), which is co-managed by CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency.
The Young Indigenous Women’s STEM Academy will increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander females undertaking studies and careers in STEM. The Academy does this through targeted, long-term support to help overcome the barriers that discourage Indigenous women from pursuing STEM careers.
Young Indigenous women are invited to apply for this unique program, which is designed to provide each student with individualised support from their dedicated Academic Coordinator.
It is long term support from Year 8 through to tertiary studies and into STEM careers.
It offers a catalogue of STEM camps, extension activities, networking with industry, and academic professionals, as well as a safe space for exploration of their own cultural journey.
