Sponsorship Grants for Student Science Engagement and International Competitions – ongoing
Sponsorship Grants for Student Science Engagement and International Competitions aims to support young Australians to develop skills and potential career opportunities in a field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
It will do this by providing grants to organisations, such as schools and community groups, to sponsor eligible young Australians to participate in conferences, competitions and other STEM-related events.The Science Engagement element supports Australian students under the age of 18 to attend or participate in significant STEM related activities or events in Australia and overseas. This could include support for a senior student to pitch an innovation to an entrepreneur or participate at Australian-based STEM competitions.
The International Competitions element supports talented Australian students under the age of 18 to participate in high profile STEM competitions outside Australia.
- $1 million per year for student participation in STEM engagement activities and events that take place in Australia or overseas.
- $600,000 per year for student participation in international STEM competitions taking place outside Australia.
You can submit applications at any time, and we will assess them in the order we receive them. We will close applications when the funding for that year runs out.
The minimum grant amount per application is $1,000.
The maximum grant amount per student is
- $1,500 for STEM events or activities occurring within Australia
- $5,000 for international STEM events or activities.
