The Scholarships will provide Australian Government support to up to 1,200 regional and remote students to undertake STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) studies, including in the fields of agriculture and health.
The scholarships are for undergraduate, postgraduate and vocational education students and cover courses from Certificate IV to PhD level.
Scholarships are valued at up to $18,000 each for six months to four year qualifications (or the part-time equivalent) and will assist scholarship recipients with the costs of study for the duration of their course. The scholarships will also support flexible study by including part-time and online students.
